Employment and Jury Duty

Immediately notify your employer of your summons for jury service. Virginia law requires employers to excuse employees from regular workdays when summoned for jury duty. Employers should refer to Title § 18.2-465.1 of the Virginia Code for more information. Discuss with your employer the policy regarding payment of your wages or salary while serving as a juror. If your Report Date is problematic, you may defer your service to later in the year on the Juror eResponse Website.
