Employees may be granted leave of absence without loss of pay when called for jury duty.  This benefit is at no cost to the employee and the employee becomes eligible for it on date of hire.

If absence for jury duty would seriously impair the operation of the District, the Chancellor or College President may request the judge to defer the employee’s duty to a later date. An employee called for jury duty shall immediately report such notice to his or her supervisor and days off for Jury Duty should be submitted to Human Resources on the DCCCD's official leave form.

Full-time faculty may have leave for jury duty during the Summer (when teaching on summer formula).  The instructional dean, in consultation with the faculty member will determine the substitute faculty member or the recommended coverage of the class or classes.
