Jury Duty

Discussion in 'Scotland - education news' started by anon4046, May 16, 2011.

  1. Sorry, I don't understand. What cheque, and why was Waverly Court asking her for a cheque? Confused.

    I've had a citation for June, so am interested. I'm supply though, so don't know what happens there, wrt to money. Can I claim money for potential loss of earnings, I wonder..?

    I did jury duty during my first year of supply, 4 years ago. I got payroll to give me a letter detailing my daily/ hourly rate of pay and used that to submit to the court for expenses. Bear in mind though, that the MAX you can claim is something like £30/ day, and if they dismiss you before (I think) 11.30am they don't give you a whole day's expenses for that day (even though it's a day written off for supply by then) I did 2 weeks' jury duty but only got about £200 including my travel costs (20 mile round trip) because a lot of the time you get called in, sit about until 11am then are sent home.

    Hope this is helpful.
