If you are affected by the recent reductions-in-force (RIF), and your lay-off date is this week, you need to be aware that Davidson County Circuit Court Judge Amanda McClendon – by way of a temporary restraining order – has barred the state from laying any employees off until after a decision is announced concerning TSEA’s lawsuit against the state at a court hearing at 10 AM, Monday, June 24th.
If you are set to be laid off this week, and your department moves ahead with the layoff before Monday, June 24th, they have violated the court order. Please report any violation directly to TSEA immediately!
NOTE: Your layoff date may be extended considerably if the judge rules in TSEA’s favor on Monday. Also, NeoGov – the state’s jobsite portal – should come back online sometime tomorrow (June 19th). All those employees affected by the RIF who are interested in applying for other work within state government should take the opportunity to apply when NeoGov comes back online.
