Jury Duty Leave for Employees in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania law provides that no employer may deprive an employee of employment or threaten or otherwise coerce him or her for the reason that the employee receives a summons, attends court for prospective jury service, or serves as a juror.

The law specifies that an employer is not required to compensate the employee for time lost, and it does not apply to any employer in the retail or service industry with fewer than 15 employees or any employer in the manufacturing industry with fewer than 40 employees. Any person not entitled to reemployment shall, upon request, be excused from grand jury service.
