Jury Duty

 

 

For Full Time Teaching Faculty, and
Administrative Staff with Faculty Rank, and

Academic Support Staff with Faculty Rank

The university will pay employees their full salary for the period of time required to serve on jury duty. Employees may be required to submit notice of jury duty or proof of appearance upon commencing leave or return to work. While on jury duty, employees are still expected to spend as much time as possible at their jobs. For example, if the employee is excused from jury duty for part of a day, the university expects the employee to return to work.

Employees who are subpoenaed to appear as witness in court must provide supervisors with a copy of the court documentation relating to the requested appearance. Time spent as a witness must be charged to available vacation time unless an employee appears in court at the university’s request or on its behalf.

The employee may retain compensation received for jury duty.
