Jury Duty

Amherst College acknowledges the importance of participating in civic affairs. Employees called to serve as jurors and regular employees called as a subpoenaed witness in an action in which they are not a party, will receive their regular pay for the first three days of jury duty and thereafter will receive the difference between their regular compensation and that which is received from the courts for time actually served. Contact the Office of Human Resources for details on reimbursement.

A certificate of attendance, which can be obtained from the Clerk of the Courts, should be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources upon return to work. Employees excused from jury duty by noon on any given day should report to work for the remainder of their workday.
