Jury Duty and Subpoenas Policy

Regular and limited term full-time or part-time employees who are summoned to jury duty are granted necessary time off without loss of pay or fringe benefits for time they were scheduled to work. Accrual for benefits calculations (such as vacation, sick leave, or holiday benefits) will not be affected during jury duty absence.

Regular full and part-time employees who have received a subpoena to be a witness in court on a matter unrelated to their employment at the University of Richmond will not receive compensation from the University for time spent responding to the subpoena unless the employee uses available vacation or personal leave.

A supervisor may request documentation from the employee confirming the scheduled dates for jury duty or for responding to a subpoena.
