Because of the difficulties the excuse that more than half the jurors are used to being dismissed from serving on the jury, to be held in Orlando – about 150 km from the place of jury selection, many are concerned If jurors are compensated for their time spent serving on this or any jury. This is what Judge Eaton has to say:
Florida Statutes Section 40.24 provides compensation jury. If the jury is used and paid for jury service, no compensation for the first three days of jury service. Jurors who are not regularly employed or who are not receiving regular wages during jury service are entitled to be compensated at a rate of 15 per day for the first three days. Jurors who serve more than three days are entitled to be compensated at 30 and for each day. No compensation for travel or related expenses unless the jury is sequestered. Florida Statutes Section 40.0271 prohibits an employer from firing an employee for jury service. Threats of dismissal can result in the employer being held in contempt of court. Contempt is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in county jail or a fine of 1,000 and, or both. The law creates a civil action for wrongful discharge of employment due to jury service and damages include compensatory damages, including lost wages and punitive damages, the amount necessary to deter employers from future conduct illegal fees Attorney and costs. – Judge O.H.
