Jury Duty

Regular full-time or regular part-time employees who have completed 90 days of employment are entitled to paid jury duty. Faculty and staff will be granted a temporary leave of absence if called for jury duty. The University will pay base compensation for service. The employee must present a jury summons card to Human Resources as soon as received. On days or hours that faculty or staff presence is not required on the jury panel, the employee is expected to report for work during that time. If faculty and staff do not report to work when available, the employee will not receive pay for that day. Wage payments will not be made for jury duty on any day for which an employee would not have been scheduled to work. A proof of serving form must be submitted to the Human Resources upon return to work.
