(This doesn't affect me personally but is something that came up which I'm curious about. I'm not sure what to tag it with)
Could an employer ask "me" to change my hours for that week so that I'd do the jury duty in the normal court hours and an "evening shift" instead of my normal work hours? (6-midnight instead of 8-4 or whatever)
Assuming there's a contract that says something like Hours are 8-4 or as otherwise required.
Possible reasons: unexpected issues in live systems, "crunch time", someone on a production line called in sick, minimum number of staff to patients needed in a care home, or such like.
Would regulations on max number of hours "worked" (in a week or per "shift") include time spent on a jury?
Actually, if you normally work evenings/nights how would that work with a "day" of jury duty?
Edit: I know there are laws that the employer has to let you do the jury duty, but that doesn't take into account "unexpected" needs of the employer that weren't known when you receive the summons.
