Policy

Jury Duty


Administrators and Professionals and Professional Research Staff:

While you are on jury duty you will receive full University pay. You are expected to come to work on any full or partial days you are released from jury duty. You must give the person to whom you report a copy of your subpoena. If your call to jury duty conflicts with the needs of your office, the person to whom you report can write a letter requesting that your service be postponed. You will be granted released time necessary to report to the courthouse to reschedule your jury duty service. If you are paid by the state or federal court for jury service, you are required to reimburse NYU for the full amount paid.

Office and Clerical (Local 3882) and Laboratory and Technical (Local 3882):

You must immediately show any subpoena or notice to report for jury duty to your supervisor. Your supervisor may request that you be excused from jury duty if your services on the job are essential at the time of the proposed jury service.

Once you have passed the three-month probationary period, NYU will pay you in full for the time necessary to qualify for, report to, or serve on a jury.

If you are paid by your state for jury service, you are required to reimburse NYU for the full amount paid. Contact NYU PeopleLink to make arrangements.

If you are on probation, you may request a statement from the University indicating that you are not entitled to receive NYU pay for jury duty served during the probationary period. This may help you obtain a postponement. However, if a postponement is not granted and you have not yet completed your probationary period, NYU will pay you the applicable statutory per day requirement for your first three days of jury duty service.

On any full or partial days on which you are released from jury duty, you must report for work if you could return to NYU in time to perform at least three hours of work within your normal schedule. The three hours must be available after taking a normal lunch period and traveling to NYU.

When you complete jury duty, you should show your supervisor the slip received in court that is proof of service.

For Service Staff (Local 1, Local 810) employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement, please refer to the applicable contract for all information about jury duty. For Non-Union Service Staff, please contact the NYU PeopleLink.
