Philadelphia Employment Lawyers: Retaliation for Jury Duty

September 29th, 2016
retaliation for jury duty

Pennsylvania employers are not required to pay employees for time spent serving jury duty; however, laws are in place to protect employees from retaliation for jury duty absences. These laws are in place to enable workers to report for jury duty without fear of reprisal by an employer.

By law, an employer cannot fire, intimidate, or penalize an employee for missing work to serve jury duty; still, employees may be required to give adequate notice of jury duty absences to employers. If an employer violates the law and retaliates against an employee who misses work for jury duty, the employee may be able to file an employment lawsuit to recover lost wages and benefits and/or to be reinstated. Additionally, if an employer docks the pay of a salary based employee who is exempt from minimum wage and overtime requirements of the FLSA, it may affect the employee’s exempt classification.
