On February 21, 2012, a bill (A2554) was introduced that seeks to require employers to pay their employees for their period of service on jury duty. While current state law prohibits an employer from penalizing employees who miss work because of jury duty, this bill would require employers to pay their employees’ usual compensation for each day the employees are present for jury service, less the amount per diem fee for each day of jury service. This bill was previously introduced in 2010, but failed to advance.
