Jury Duty

When jury duty or other required civic duties (such as those when subpoenas are received involving business that is not personal) occur during a normal work day, eligible employees may be granted a special paid leave. If such a leave is granted, the institution will pay the employee the difference between the compensation received in the course of such duty (not including travel and food expenses) and the regular pay for the period of service. A copy of the summons or other notice must be submitted to supervisory personnel prior to approval. In addition to the summons, the employee is required to submit a time off request for jury duty in the online timekeeping system.

It is not the policy of the institution to request deferment of or exemption from such obligations.

If employees are subpoenaed to appear in court involving personal business, they must use their vacation and/or personal days in order to receive pay for the time away from work.
