3.5.8 Administrative Leave

Jury Duty
Jury Duty is recognized as a civic responsibility.  A regular full-time or part-time employee serving as a juror may be granted Administrative Leave with pay.
 
Special leave with pay shall not be granted for court attendance when the employee is the defendant or is engaged in personal litigation.  Personal leave shall be used for this purpose.
 
Elections
The University supports civic responsibilities.  Employees are encouraged to exercise their right to vote and where possible, vote before or after working hours.  However, if a situation arises where an employee can only vote at a time when he/she is scheduled to be at work, the immediate supervisor may make an exception.
