NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Davidson County judge has issued an order, preventing state government from laying off more than 200 workers this month.

After the administration of Gov. Bill Haslam notified employees they were being laid off, the Tennessee State Employees Association and a group of individual state workers filed suit.

According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Circuit Court Judge Amanda McClendon granted the employees' request for a temporary restraining order on Monday afternoon. She has scheduled a hearing for this coming Monday.

The lawsuit contends the state failed to provide career counseling, job testing and placement efforts, as required by law.

Haslam spokeswoman Alexia Poe said by email that comment on pending litigation would be inappropriate.
