Employer Termination for Jury Duty


Have you been wrongfully terminated, harassed, or retaliated against because you served on a California jury?If so, your California employer may have violated California law. California Labor Code section 230(a) states that a California employer may not in any way retaliate, harass, or discharge a California employee because they are required to take time off to serve on a California jury once the employer receives reasonable notice.

230. (a) An employer shall not discharge or in any manner

discriminate against an employee for taking time off to serve as

required by law on an inquest jury or trial jury, if the employee,

prior to taking the time off, gives reasonable notice to the employer

that the employee is required to serve.
