Jury Duty and Subpoenas

Jury Duty

The University encourages employees to fulfill their civic responsibilities by serving jury duty when required. Regular full-time or part-time employees who are summoned to jury duty are granted necessary time off without effective loss of regular pay or fringe benefits. All other employees will be granted necessary time off but will not be paid by the University. Accrual for benefits calculations (such as vacation, sick leave, or holiday benefits) will not be affected during jury duty absence.


Regular full and part-time employees who have received a subpoena to be a witness in court and are not a party to the legal action will not lose compensation from the University for regularly scheduled hours.

An employee who is a party to the legal action will not receive compensation from the University unless the employee uses available vacation or personal days.


Employees must notify their supervisor when summoned for jury duty or when served with a subpoena to appear as a witness in court. The employee must also provide a copy of the subpoena to the supervisor.
