No immediate layoffs are planned at the two Indiana factories that build Toyota models included in the company's production halt as it looks to fix sticking gas pedals.

About 4,200 people work at Toyota's southern Indiana plant near Princeton, making the Highlander and Sequoia SUVs that are among the troubled models. Toyota also is suspending its Camry assembly line at the 3,300-worker Subaru plant in Lafayette. The company announced the production suspensions Tuesday.

Princeton plant spokeswoman Kelly Dillon said the production lines will be shut down for a week beginning Monday, but that all employees will do training and plant-improvement work.

Subaru of Indiana senior vice president Tom Easterday says all its employees will have eight hours of work each day.

Toyota plants in Kentucky and Texas and two in Canada also will have production halts.
