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.
