Are jurors compensated?
Yes, the state will pay a fee of $40 for each day of physical attendance.

Exception 1 - Jurors who are employed cannot be paid a jury fee for any days on which they receive regular wages unless their regular wage is less than $40. In that case, the state will pay the difference between the juror’s wage and the $40 fee.

Exception 2 - Jurors who work for an employer with more than 10 employees must be paid by their employer at least $40 of their regular daily wage – whichever is less – for the first 3 days of service.

Note: The obligation of the employer to pay only applies if the juror is serving jury duty on a regularly scheduled work day. If not, the state pays the daily fee of $40.
