39.0 II-2.50 - POLICY ON JURY SERVICE FOR FACULTY MEMBERS
(Approved by the Board of Regents, May 7, 1993)
The purpose of this policy is to establish for faculty members at
UMS institutions a leave category called Jury Service which permits
absence from duty without loss of any pay or charge to personal or
accrued annual leave.
A faculty member who is selected for jury duty shall notify the
appropriate academic administrator of this selection without delay.
The faculty member shall be permitted to be absent without loss of
pay or charge to any leave for the day(s) of jury service. Upon
request, the employee shall be responsible for providing
documentation which verifies attendance. If, after reporting for
jury duty, it is determined that the individual's services are not
required and the individual is dismissed for the day, then the
individual, time permitting, is required to return to the job.
