We encourage our associates to be responsive to and active in community and civic affairs. A part of this responsibility includes serving on jury duty when called. Only in cases of emergency should an associate attempt to be excused from jury duty.
In recognition of this, BB&T will allow up to 20 days of time off with pay to all regularly scheduled part-time and full-time associates called for jury duty.
Enter these days into Workday as "Jury Duty."
Beginning with the 21st day of jury duty, BB&T will offset pay continuation to the associate with any compensation received from jury duty. Associates called for jury duty should provide the legal documentation to their managers immediately so that arrangements can be made for their relief. Associates are expected to report back to work on a daily basis if relieved or excused early by the court.
