It is the civic duty of every eligible citizen to serve on a jury when called upon. However, there are some circumstances where serving on a jury may not be possible. If you have an employee who needs to be excused from jury duty, you can write a letter to the court on their behalf.
When writing a letter to excuse an employee from jury duty, it is essential to include:
- The name and contact information for the employer
- The name of the employee
- The dates of jury duty service
- A statement explaining why the employee cannot serve jury duty
- A request that the employee be excused from jury duty
(Name of the Court)
