Procedure G9: Compensation For Jury Duty
In administering Massachusetts law regarding jury duty compensation (Chapter 234A), it is the district’s firm commitment that those employees serving on jury duty will not suffer any loss of wages.
Compensation for jury duty service will be made in accordance with the negotiated contract for the relevant work group.
In order to fulfill this commitment the following is required:
If payment by the Court is provided to employees, employees must turnover any such payment to the Business Office since employees are paid by the districts for their jury duty responsibilities. Reporting to the Human Resources Office is essential since employees are members of a contributory retirement system (teacher or county) which requires the reporting of wages and withholdings and the forwarding of said withholdings to the respective boards.
