Jury Duty/ Court Appearance
Most employers believe that an employee has a civic responsibility
to serve when called as a juror or witness, and many states prohibit
discrimination against employees who serve as a juror or witness.
Although most employers pay employees on leave for jury
service, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require employers to pay nonexempt salaried employees or
hourly employees while on leave for jury service. However, employers
must pay full salaries to exempt employees who are absent from work
for less than 1 week to perform jury service.
