An employee has been called up for Jury Service. Do I have to pay them?

Employees attending jury service will be paid an attendance fee from the Ministry of Justice. The fee is nominal, and will only cover the costs incurred by the employee as a result of attending jury service.

You are not required to pay employees on jury service, but you can elect to provide a top up payment.  It can be useful to have in place a policy covering your approach in this regard.
