Leaves - jury and witness duty
Most jurisdictions across the country have laws that protect the jobs of employees who must be absent from work to serve on a jury. So jurisdictions also protect an employee who is called as a witness. These requirements are unique to each jurisdiction. They may be included in the "Jury Act" or in employment standards.
