Where time off on jury service is not paid advise an employee about the compensation that he or she can claim

Key points

  • Employees have no statutory right to be paid while they are absent on jury service.
  • An employee who is not paid in full during absence from work on jury service may claim limited compensation for loss of earnings from the court.
  • In these circumstances, the employer will need to complete a Certificate of Loss of Earnings or Benefit for the employee to give to the court.
