Primary Information

    The University recognizes the employee’s need to take time off when called to serve in local, state and/or other juries or jury selections.  As such, the University will pay the difference between the employee’s regular University pay and jury duty pay for up to thirty (30) days pursuant to a lawful jury summons.
