I am a line manager and one of my staff has been called for Jury Service. It will be inconvenient to my section for this person to be absent. Is there anything I can do?

Jury Service is a matter between the individual called and the court. In certain circumstances, a line manager may support the individual’s case for deferment (see above) if necessary. If it is solely a question of convenience, there is nothing a line manager can do to prevent an individual member of staff being called to attend for Jury Service.
