The University believes that every citizen should fulfill his/her civic responsibilities in serving on court juries or as a witness when compelled by subpoena or other legal process.
If an employee is summoned for jury duty, and the employee is either a regular status or extended temporary employee, the University pays the difference between his/her regular base salary for those days and hours normally scheduled to be worked and the sum received for such services, if any. Employees who work full-time but are not regular or extended temporary status employees are compensated for up to a maximum of five work days. Employees who do not work full-time and are not regular or extended temporary status employees are not compensated for jury duty leave.
If an employee is summoned to appear as a witness in a court case, and the employee is a regular status or extended temporary employee, then the University pays the difference between his/her regular base salary for those days and hours normally scheduled to be worked, except that the University will not pay when the employee appears as a witness for his/her own personal benefit.
