If a staff member receives a subpoena to testify in court, YOUR CHURCH will allow for time off as needed to satisfy the subpoena. If a staff member is summoned to be a witness for YOUR CHURCH or if YOUR CHURCH asks a staff member to testify, the staff member will receive the time off with pay.
Time off for witness duty for a court case not involving YOUR CHURCH will be paid up to a maximum of two weeks. Any available paid leave such as vacation may be used for any unpaid time off the staff member may be required to take.
All requests for witness duty time off should be made of the staff member’s ministry area leader as soon as the subpoena is received. During the approved witness duty period the staff member is expected to report for work anytime they are not needed in court.
