39.0 II-2.50 - POLICY ON JURY SERVICE FOR FACULTY MEMBERS (Approved by the Board of Regents, May 7, 1993) The purpose of this policy is to establish for faculty members at UMS institutions a leave category called Jury Service which permits absence from duty without loss of any pay or charge to personal or accrued annual leave. A faculty member who is selected for jury duty shall notify the appropriate academic administrator of this selection without delay. The faculty member shall be permitted to be absent without loss of pay or charge to any leave for the day(s) of jury service. Upon request, the employee shall be responsible for providing documentation which verifies attendance. If, after reporting for jury duty, it is determined that the individual's services are not required and the individual is dismissed for the day, then the individual, time permitting, is required to return to the job.
