Jury Duty

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread

I am a 2nd shift worker at a major hospital in the area. Recently, I, and several other members of my shift had been summoned to jury service. Our employer demanded in writing that upon completion of our jury service, each day that we must report to work and complete our regularly scheduled shifts. This makes for a very long day for those employees. In addition a third shift employee would have to be up all night at work and be up all day for jury duty. Second shift employees would be up late till at least one am and getting up around six am. 1st shift employees are exempt from this policy. Is this a legal and enforceable policy
