EmployerEmployee / worker

Employers are required to continue to pay employees their normal wages or salary when they are summonsed to attend court as a juror or witness. 

There are significant penalties that apply if an employer refuses to pay or acts in a detrimental way to an employee undertaking jury duty.

Employers can apply for reimbursement of lost income when an employee is doing jury duty.
