Court leave

You are entitled to paid leave if you are required to attend a court proceeding as a witness or to serve as a juror (including attendance at the selection process). Your pay is reduced by any juror payment you receive.

You must request court leave in writing and provide a copy of your summons to your supervisor and Human Resources.

If you are a defendant in a court proceeding, you are eligible for leave without pay or you may use your accumulated days of annual leave. You are not eligible for court leave if you are serving a prison sentence.

Leave Management System

You must enter your leave in the Workday leave management system prior to your leave or if this is not possible, immediately upon your return to work.
