509 Jury Duty
If an employee is notified to appear in court for jury duty, the employee must inform his or her supervisor in advance of the court appearance date.
Employees selected for jury duty in judicial districts that have implemented the One-Day-One-Trial system will receive their regular salary from the University for the first five days of juror service. Beginning with the sixth day of their service, employees will receive the difference between their current salary and the jury compensation (excluding any travel and expense reimbursements). Under this system, jurors are expected to be available for service, but are notified on a day-to-day basis of the need to be present in court; therefore their days of service are not necessarily consecutive.
Employees selected for jury duty in judicial districts that have not yet implemented the new system, beginning the first day of service, will receive the difference between their current salary and the jury duty compensation (excluding travel and expense reimbursements).
Certification of time spent and compensation received for jury duty may be obtained by the employee from the Clerk of the Court. To secure the difference in pay, the department must submit copies of this certification with a Personnel Profile form.
Employees not required to be in court or released from jury duty during the course of the day are expected to return to their departments to perform their assigned tasks.
