A worker filed a lawsuit against Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE: RHI) seeking compensation for time spent interviewing with current and potential clients, Robert Half reported Tuesday in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The plaintiff, Vincent Uberti, filed the lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court. The suit seeks class action status, and covers the four years prior to the filing of the lawsuit on April 19.
Uberti seeks allegedly unpaid compensation and money for alleged failure of the company to provide accurate wage statements.
“The company believes it has meritorious defenses to the allegations and the company intends to vigorously defend against the litigation,” Robert Half wrote in its SEC filing.
Staffing firms have been sued for time spent at client interviews before. Kelly Services Inc. (NASD: KELYA) settled a lawsuit in September 2011 that was filed by temps seeking compensation for client interviews. For more on that lawsuit, click here.
