Must employers pay their employees while they serve on jury duty?
No. The law requires your employer to give you time off for jury duty, but does not require the employer to pay you while you serve on jury duty. Check with your employer to see what the pay policy is while you serve. If your employer does not pay for time off and that creates a financial hardship, you need to obtain a letter from your employer stating the pay policy and submit that along with your signed questionnaire requesting to be excused.
