Jury Duty

Revised January 2011

Employees who are subpoenaed for jury duty will be allowed time off work to serve unless they prefer to petition the court to be excused from serving for hardship or other reasons.

Those who are required to appear in court (when not a litigant) or are called to jury duty will continue to receive their normal pay. Juror pay for services from the court must be remitted to the Payroll Office to offset the continued salary expense. However, the employee retains any mileage reimbursement received from the courts.

PLU may support and release employees from their regular job duties to volunteer as a Citizen Corps member during a county emergency. The supervisor has discretion to release the employee relative to job responsibilities at PLU. Please contact the PLU Emergency Programs office to register for Citizen Corps.
