This document should state that the employee responded to an emergency and indicate the time and date of the emergency.
Civil Service employees shall request jury duty leave from their appropriate supervisor. Employees are expected to report to work whenever their services are not required by the court during their normally scheduled workday and call their supervisors for report-to-work instructions unless earlier arrangements were approved.

Employees should receive approval from their appropriate supervisor or campus executive officer. Such leave will be granted whether or not within the State and whether or not voluntary.
