Employment Status

No employer may discharge or suspend any employee for serving as a juror; any employee serving as a juror shall retain and be entitled to the same job status, pay, and seniority as he/she had prior to serving as a juror. However, the employer has discretion as to whether absence for jury duty is with or without pay. Jurors may obtain a certificate of attendance from the Clerk's office in the courthouse.
