Time off for other duties

 

Public Duties

If you are undertaking jury service, serving on public bodies or undertaking public duties you will be granted paid leave of absence. If you are able to claim for loss of earnings then you should complete the necessary paperwork. When you receive the payment directly, a deduction will be made from your salary. This does not include leave for employees who are required to attend court as a witness for a case which is not relevant to Denbighshire County Council. In such cases your absence from work will have to be taken as annual leave, flexi or as unpaid leave.
