4236 - COURT APPEARANCE

Any service personnel employee who is subpoenaed to appear as a witness but not as a defendant in any criminal proceeding in any court of law may make such appearance without any loss of pay. Absent proof that a child custody proceeding is criminal, an employee who is subpoenaed to testify in the proceeding is not entitled to do so without loss of pay or personal leave. The Board of Education shall pay to such employee the difference between the witness fee, exclusive of travel allowances, payable for such appearance by the court and the amount of salary due to the person for the time such employee is absent from his/her employment by reason of answering such subpoena.
