All regular full-time and part-time employees.

The program

Employees called for jury duty are requested to notify their supervisor immediately and provide a copy of the jury duty notice. Employees on jury duty will be paid their regular wages while on jury duty, up to a maximum of two weeks. Pay received for jury duty is to be turned over to the Cashier in the Business Office upon receipt. Employees may keep travel expense money received while on jury duty. If the employee is required to serve longer than two weeks the time will be unpaid. An employee released from jury duty with 2 or more hours remaining in their normal workday are expected to contact their supervisor to determine if he or she will be required to come back to work.

Employees subpoenaed as witnesses in criminal or civil proceedings (including depositions and administrative proceedings) may receive up to two paid court leave days in a calendar year. Employees who require more than two days, or who wish to voluntarily appear in a civil or criminal proceeding(including depositions and administrative proceedings), must use any accrued vacation for each additional day of attendance in a criminal or civil proceeding. If the employee does not have any available vacation, the employee may request unpaid time away from work under the Personal Leave policy.
