§ 39.158  JURY DUTY AND WITNESS FEES.
   (a)   Any nonexempt employee who is called upon for jury duty during regularly scheduled work hours shall not suffer any loss of regular base pay; provided, however, upon the termination of jury duty, the employee shall remit to human resources any fees, mileage, or other remuneration received for their participation in jury duty. An employee who is compensated for jury duty on a day that is other than a regular scheduled workday shall retain such compensation for that day.
   (b)   Any witness fees, allowances, or other remuneration received by an exempt or nonexempt employee for acting as a witness on behalf of and in the course of city duties must be remitted to the city. Failure to submit the funds to the city will result in the deduction of the amount from the employee's regular compensation.
