Typically, you will not be excused for work-related reasons. It is against the law for an employer to penalize you for performing jury service or to prevent you from serving as a juror. If you are currently involved in an important project, going out of town on business or having to work extra hours, you may be able to reschedule your jury service to a more convenient date. You should contact the jury clerk at 843-545-3037 if you wish to reschedule your jury service for another term of court. The clerk may accommodate the transferal request if one has not already been granted.
Upon completion of your service as a juror, request a letter from the clerk of court, which will indicate the number of days and dates you served as a juror, and the amount of compensation you will receive. This letter may be given to your employer as proof of your service as a juror.
