In the event you receive notice to report for jury duty, please notify your supervisor immediately so that arrangements can be made to have your duties covered until you return to work. If, however, this time is not convenient for the Company you may be provided with a letter to request that your jury duty be postponed.
While you serve as a juror, the Company will pay you the difference between your regular straight time earnings and your pay for up to 10 working days. The Company will pay your full regular straight time earnings and you will endorse over to the Company your jury pay check from the government. Time spent on jury duty will be counted as regular working time for all purposes except overtime. The employee must return to work for any reasonable time the court is closed during normal work hours.
No adverse employment action will be taken against employees or applicants due to their service as a juror in state or federal courts.
