Jury Duty

Scheduled Maintenance

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is conducting scheduled system maintenance starting Friday, February 15 at 5:00 p.m. ET through Tuesday, February 19 at 8:00 a.m. ET. Most DOL websites and web systems will be affected and unavailable to the public. The National Contact Center remains open 24 hours a day to contact Job Corps (1-800-733-5627), MSHA (1-800-746-1553), and OSHA (1-800-321-6742).

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require payment for time not worked, including jury duty. This type of benefit is generally a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee's representative).

While federal law does not, some state laws require employers to pay employees who are asked to serve jury duty.
