At [company], we understand that serving on a jury is an important civic duty. We want to support our employees who are called to serve on a jury, while also ensuring that our business is not disrupted. Our jury duty policy is as follows:
- Notification: If you are called to serve on a jury, you should notify your manager as soon as possible. You should provide your manager with the dates that you are required to serve, as well as any information about the length of the trial or potential delays.
- Time Off: You will be allowed to take time off to serve on a jury, without any loss of pay. You should use your paid time off (PTO) for the days that you are serving on the jury. If you do not have enough PTO available, you may use unpaid time off.
- Proof of Service: You will be required to provide proof of your jury service, such as a summons or a letter from the court. You should bring this proof to your manager as soon as possible.
- Reimbursement: [company] will reimburse you for any jury fees that you are required to pay, as well as any mileage or parking fees that you incur while serving on the jury. You should submit receipts to your manager for reimbursement.
We value our employees’ commitment to civic duty and want to support them in fulfilling their obligations as jurors. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please speak with your manager. Thank you for your service.
