Jury duty is a legal obligation for US citizens when summoned as a juror in a court of law. Some states enforce penalties or criminally prosecute individuals that ignore a summons to serve on a jury.
According to the Federal Jury System Improvement Act, employers may not penalize employees for serving jury duty. Employers are still obligated to pay the wages of exempt salaried employees while on jury duty, but a non-exempt, hourly paid employee is not owed this by federal law. There are some states, however, that do require employers to pay their non-exempt, hourly employees for jury service.
