Notify Your Employer

It is your responsibility as a summoned juror to notify your employer of the potential to being called to serve on a jury for your jury term and to update them as required.

Ohio Revised Code 2313.18

Ohio Revised Code 2313.18 prohibits actions of an employer of a juror, specifically prohibiting an employer from discharging or threatening to discharge any permanent employee summoned to serve as a juror if that employee gives reasonable notice of their summons prior to being absent from work for service as a juror. It also states “Whoever violates shall be punished as for a contempt of court.”
