Jury Duty

Are employers required to compensate an hourly wage for Jury Duty in California?

In California, employers are not required to compensate employees for time off spent on jury duty. Additionally, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which establishes wage and compensation guidelines, doesn’t require non-exempt employees to be paid for time not worked. Employees classified as exempt under the FLSA must be paid their full salary if they perform any work during a workweek in which they attend jury duty.

California law expressly prohibits employers to terminate or impose negative employment actions against an employee taking time off to serve on a jury or trial jury as long as the employee provides reasonable notice of his service requirement.
