Ask A Question: Jury/Legal Duty

Got a question of about the University of Wyoming or your employment here? 

Ask away at:


If I am called in for jury duty, is this leave time covered by UW?  If so, what type of leave is it and how should it be reported?


According to Presidential Directive 4-2004-2, Leave With Pay, jury or legal duty is considered to be one type of Non-Emergency Leave with Pay: “Staff employees are entitled to a leave of absence with pay when required to perform jury duty, when subpoenaed as a witness or when summoned to give expert testimony.”

Other forms of Non-Emergency Leave with Pay include:

  • Leave taken to vote and
  • Work-related leave such as meetings, institutes, professional examination, and other activities directly related to an employees’ work.

The most common UW time report includes a drop-down menu with codes for leave types taken; Legal Duty (coded LEGAL) is among the selections possible.
