An Act providing further protection for Grand Jurors

H1556: An Act providing further protection for Grand Jurors

Grand jurors have expressed dissatisfaction that they are only exempt from future service for the same amount of time (three years) as trial jurors, despite the significantly greater commitment required of grand jurors. This proposal expands the exemption period to six years. This bill also addresses concerns about retribution from their employers due to prolonged absence by amending amend the statute to require an explanation of employer civil and criminal liability in the materials provided to grand jurors.
