FAQs

Q:
Are Jurors paid for their service?
A:
Jurors are paid for their service. Each juror receives six dollars ($6) for the first day of appearance and fourty dollars ($40) for the second and any subsequent days of appearance. Jurors may donate their pay to a number of organizations that have been approved by the Denton County Commissioners Court. Total donations to those organizations averages about $75,000 annually.

*Payment is processed at the end of jury service, and a check is mailed to each juror within two to three weeks of their service.*
Q:
Must my employer pay me while I’m on jury service?
A:
Unfortunately your employer is not currently required by Texas state law to pay you while you are serving jury duty. However the law states that an employer can not terminate your employment for attending jury service.
