412 Court Duty


Court duty leave with pay is only granted to regular employees for the purpose of serving on a jury or as a subpoenaed witness. Such leave is granted upon presentation of official documentation from the appropriate court. A subpoena or a certified letter from the clerk of court serves as official documentation as serving as a witness. A receipt from the appropriate court stating the number of days served qualifies as documentation for serving on jury duty.

Employees may retain juror or witness fees paid by the court. An employee appearing in court related to a personal matter will not be granted leave with pay without the appropriate court subpoena. An employee serving as an expert witness must take vacation time and it must comply with the “Outside Activity Policy” (See Section 101.9 ).
