This policy applies to employees in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University, including Clerc Center teachers, unless specifically covered by collective bargaining agreements made between Gallaudet University and certified bargaining agents.
The University believes that every citizen should fulfill his/her civic responsibilities in serving on court juries or as a witness when compelled by subpoena or other legal process.
If an employee is summoned for jury duty, and the employee is either a regular status or extended temporary employee, the University pays the difference between his/her regular base salary for those days and hours normally scheduled to be worked and the sum received for such services, if any. Employees who work full-time but are not regular or extended temporary status employees are compensated for up to a maximum of five work days. Employees who do not work full-time and are not regular or extended temporary status employees are not compensated for jury duty leave.
If an employee is summoned to appear as a witness in a court case, and the employee is a regular status or extended temporary employee, then the University pays the difference between his/her regular base salary for those days and hours normally scheduled to be worked, except that the University will not pay when the employee appears as a witness for his/her own personal benefit.
