Court Leave

Can I get unpaid leave to serve on a jury or court?

Employees can take unpaid leave if they must serve on a jury or the court says that they must appear as a witness.   An unpaid leave of absence must be granted to an employee as a result of being summoned or selected to serve on a jury or required to attend as a witness at a hearing, application or proceeding.

Who can I contact for more information?
