Jury Duty

The Firm encourages employees to fulfill their civic responsibilities by performing jury duty when required. A copy of the jury duty summons should be given to Angela McIlveen as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made to accommodate the absence. Employees will receive full pay for up to 8 hours of time spent on active jury duty and will be expected to report for work whenever the court schedule permits. Accrued PTO can be used in order to receive compensation for any unpaid jury duty.

The Firm also will grant leave to appear as a witness if an employee is subpoenaed to do so. If an employee is subpoenaed by the Firm, he or she will receive full pay for the entire period of witness duty at the Firm’s sole discretion. If someone other than the Firm subpoenas the employee, a maximum of 8 hours paid leave will be given to appear in court as a witness. Accrued PTO can be used in order to receive compensation for any period of absence for witness duty that would otherwise be unpaid. The subpoena must be shown to the Director of Operations immediately upon receipt so that arrangements can be made to accommodate the absence. Employees will be expected to report for work whenever the court schedule permits.
