Jury Duty is a civic duty. The University will comply with all federal, state, and local laws with respect to Jury Duty.
Time off for Jury Duty will be considered an excused absence and Adelphi will continue to pay the employee’s full salary for a period of ten (10) days. The University reserves the right to ask the Court for a postponement from Jury Duty if in the opinion of the University, the employee’s services are essential during the time of Jury Duty.
All full-time and part-time non-union employees, as well as hourly employees, are covered. Jury Duty for union represented employees is covered in the applicable collective bargaining agreements.
