Jury Duty

Anyone know if I can get out of jury duty since I work night/swing shift? I don't mind doing jury duty, but I get off work at 3:00a.m. and I don't want to get up in a couple hours to go do jury duty.

Re: Jury Duty

Actually, that's probably going to increase the likelihood that you'll get picked, sorry. You have no immediate scheduling conflict and they'll tell you to take time off if necessary just like people who work days.

Re: Jury Duty

Does that mean that you will be working on the same days as you report to court because your employer won't pay you if you miss work due to jury duty? If that's the case, you can probably declare that as a hardship. On the other hand, if you don't have to go to work on days you report, you will not likely get any sympathy.

They will expect you to miss a night of work to just as they expect you to miss a day of work.

No one likes jury duty but that's life in the US.

Re: Jury Duty

my county sent a jury questionaire for me to fill out and i told them that i couldn't serve because i have a wandering mind and have a hard time paying attention. plus i didn't feel comfortable with deciding another person's fate because i feel i didn't have the knowledge or experience to do that. they are retarded if they contact me to be a juror.

Re: Jury Duty

Well, I got out of jury duty. All I put on the form was that I worked night shift and that there was no possible way for me to get up at 8 a.m. just to go do jury duty. They didn't even ask for verification that I worked nights or anything. Sweet.
