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
federalFair 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.
