Jurors are compensated at the rate of $15 per half day. Jurors will be paid by check on jury selection day and at the conclusion of each jury trial. Jurors will also be paid $2 for mileage.
State law does not require employers to compensate their employees while they are on jury duty, however, many employers support the jury system and provide jury duty benefits and will continue employee wages while they serve as a juror. Please check with your employer.
State law prohibits an employer from discharging or in any manner discriminating against an employee for taking time off to serve as a juror if the employee, prior to taking the time off, gives reasonable notice to the employer of the requirement to serve as a juror.
If your employer requires proof of jury service, the court will furnish one for you.
