On June 10, a bill (A2818) was introduced in the Assembly which would require employers to pay an employee serving on jury duty. Employers would be required to pay an employee his or her usual compensation less the per diem juror fee for each day of service. The employee must provide his or her employer with notice by the sheriff or other court officer showing the dates of service and juror fees paid. The bill amends the existing law that prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for serving on a jury.
