Full time and part time employees will receive time off with pay on scheduled work days to perform jury duty. In cases of extended jury duty longer than one week, the branch/department manager may flex or change the employee's regular work schedule to allow the employee to perform regular duties. Total compensation will not exceed the employee's normal budgeted hours per week. Jury fees need not be surrendered. Proof of jury attendance may be required.
Any person entitled to vote at any election held within this state shall, on the day of such election, be entitled to be absent from work for a period of three hours between the time of opening and the closing of the polls for the purpose of voting. Absence from work for the purpose of voting will not carry with it any loss of pay or disciplinary action.
The employee must request time off from his/her immediate supervisor prior to the election day in order to be absent without loss of pay or disciplinary action.
If there are three successive hours while the polls are open in which the employee is not scheduled to work, no additional time off will be allowed.
The supervisor may specify any three hours between the time of opening and closing of the polls during which employees may be absent for the purpose of voting.
