Employer Responsibilities - Jury RCW 2.36.165

It is against the law, per RCW 2.36.165, for an employer to fire or demote or harass an employee because they serve as a juror.  RCW 2.36.165 (2) states "An employer shall not deprive an employee of employment or threaten, coerce, or harass an employee, or deny an employee promotional opportunities because the employee receives a summons, responds to the summons, serves as a juror, or attends court for prospective jury service." However, the law does not require that the employee be paid in full while serving.
