Support an employee's application for deferral of or excusal from jury service

Key points

  • Employees who have been summoned for jury service can apply to be excused or to have the service deferred in certain circumstances.
  • An employer cannot apply for excusal or deferral on the employee's behalf, but can write a letter supporting the employee's application, for example if his or her absence would cause difficulty to the organisation.
