Jury Duty Leave Requirements

Jury Duty Leave Requirements

Federal law imposes the following jury duty leave requirements on all employers:

  1. Employers are prohibited from discharging, threatening to discharge, intimidating, or coercing any permanent employee because of the employee’s jury service in a federal court.
  2. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers cannot make deductions for absence of an exempt employee due to jury duty. However, an employer may offset an employee’s weekly salary by the amount of jury duty fees the employee received that week.
  3. Under the FLSA, non-exempt employees are not required to be paid for jury duty leave.
