Wages Whilst On Jury Service

During jury service there is no statutory entitlement for an employee to be paid by his employer, unless there is a clause in their contract regarding such a situation.

 

 

Employees are however entitled to claim allowances from the court to cover travel and subsistence costs whilst they are on jury service. They can also claim a financial loss allowance regarding any loss of net earnings suffered as a result of attending the court.

The maximum financial loss allowance depends upon the number of hours served. The amounts:

  • First 10 Days:
    • 4 hours or under each day  £32.47
    • Over 4 hours each day – £64.95

 

  • Day 11 to Day 200:
    • 4 hours or under each day – £64.95
    • Over 4 hours each day – £129.91

 

  • After Day 201:
    • 4 hours or under each day – £114.03
    • Over 4 hours – £228.06
