Subpoenas - Responding to Obligation to Appear



This policy applies to all employees.


Policy Statement

The university recognizes the civic responsibility of its employees to respond when served with a subpoena.



Employees should notify their supervisor of their obligation to respond to a legal subpoena by providing a copy of the document for review. If the employee responding to the subpoena is classified as non-exempt staff, the supervisor should record the time required to respond to the subpoena as excused with pay on the time record or in Kronos. Time recorded as excused with pay does not count toward overtime.

Regardless of employee classification, if the court appearance is not a full day, employees are expected to work before or after the conclusion of such an appearance.
