PURPOSE:

To establish policy and procedures for administering time off for employees subpoenaed for court and jury duty.


POLICY:

It is the policy of Ohio University that employees will honor all lawful subpoenas. Employees will continue to receive full pay when they are subpoenaed for any court appearance or jury duty by the United States, the State of Ohio, or a political subdivision.


PROCEDURES:

When properly subpoenaed, an employee is required to notify supervision in advance to request approval for the necessary time off.

Employees may be excused from scheduled work assignments without loss of pay only for the period of reporting to and serving on a jury or as a court witness.

An employee required to serve (or appear) for only a part of a day for court or jury duty has an obligation to return to a scheduled work assignment following dismissal by the Court.

The provisions of this policy do not apply to those instances when an employee appears in court for personal violations or when a subpoena has not been issued.
