NEC grants leaves to employees who are required to serve jury duty. The following requirements apply to the employee and NEC:
- NEC is required to pay the employee in full for the first three (3) days of service.
- Beginning with the fourth day, NEC will pay the difference between the employee’s regular salary and the pay received for jury duty. To ensure accuracy with paychecks, rather than adjusting an employees pay, NEC will request any compensation from the state for jury duty be signed over to NEC.
- If an employee is subpoenaed to represent NEC, NEC pays the employee according to his/her regular salary or hourly rate of pay.
Documentation regarding jury duty and any pay received must be provided to NEC. Employees who are subpoenaed to be witnesses in legal proceedings may use personal days or vacation time to be paid during their absence from work. 2013-07-22
