180.060 – JURY DUTY

Updated: April 2008

POLICY
The organization encourages all regular employees to fulfill their civic responsibility to occasionally serve as a juror. The organization will continue to pay employees their regular compensation for regularly scheduled hours of work missed as a result of being called for jury duty or serving as a juror for up to 10 calendar days.

PROCEDURE
Upon receiving legal notice to serve, employees will present the notice to the business office so that staffing can be arranged during the absence. Should the absence from work create a serious difficulty to the organization, we will correspond with the Clerk of Courts to attempt to arrange for the employee’s dismissal from jury duty. Employees are expected to return to work (if reasonably practical) on any day or half day when not required to serve.

Upon completion of jury service, a copy of the pay voucher from the court will be required as proof of attendance.
