Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 24, 2012, Robert Half International Inc. issued a press release reporting earnings for the first fiscal quarter of 2012. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

The foregoing information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being “furnished” and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and shall not be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such future filing.


Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Company’s prior filings contained disclosures regarding three lawsuits against the Company filed in the California Superior Court: one by Plaintiff Mark Laffitte, on behalf of himself and a putative class of salaried Account Executives and Staffing Managers; one by Plaintiff Isabel Apolinario, on behalf of herself and a putative class of salaried Account Executives and Staffing Mangers; and one by Plaintiff Van Williamson, on behalf of himself and a putative class of salaried Account Executives and Staffing Managers. As previously reported by the Company, the Company believes it has meritorious defenses to the allegations and has vigorously defended against each litigation. Each of these cases is set for voluntary mediation on June 18, 2012. There is no assurance that any or all of these cases will settle at the mediation. A previous voluntary mediation of two of these cases on August 10, 2010, did not result in a settlement. If any of the cases are settled at mediation, the amounts paid by the Company may be material.


Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
