Civic Leave or Jury Duty
When an employee is called for jury duty or as a witness, time off with unpaid will be granted. The Company shall pay the difference between the court payment and the employee’s regular pay rate. Should the employee be vital to the Company’s operation, the court may be asked to excuse the employee from jury duty.
Employees must notify management upon receipt of their summons. A document from the court showing the time and amount paid must be given to management. If the court dismisses the jury or witness early, the employee is expected to return to work as soon as possible (and complete an eight-hour shift comprised of civic time and time on the job).
