Jury Duty Leave Rules in Oklahoma

Filed under Office & HR.

Oklahoma employers must provide employees with leave for jury duty in accordance with these state rules.

An employee summoned to serve as a juror who notifies his or her employer of the summons within a reasonable time after receipt of the summons and prior to serving, may not be terminated, removed or otherwise subject to adverse employment action as a result of the service.

In addition, employees can not be required to use any annual vacation or sick leave they may be entitled to for time spent responding to a jury duty summons, time spent participating in the jury selection process, or time spent actually serving on a jury.

A court will be required to automatically postpone and reschedule the service of a summoned juror who is employed by an employer having five or less full-time employees or their equivalent if another employee of that employer has previously been summoned to appear during the same period. This exception does not affect an individual's right to request postponement of jury service, which may be done only once.

No jury duty pay is specified.
