courts provide a small amount of compensation for jury service, some
companies compensate employees at their regular base rate of pay.
If you are called for jury duty, your employer will likely require you
to obtain verification that you have served from the court. If your jury
is excused earlier than the close of business, your employer could
require you to report to work.
Jury duty is considered a civic responsibility. In general, if your
employer is reluctant to permit you to serve, it is a matter for the
courts and the employer to resolve. Contact the clerk of the court where
you were called to serve if your employer resists letting you carry out
your civic duty.
