Ask a Travel Nurse: What do I do if I am called for Jury Duty While on Contract?

What do I do if I am called for Jury Duty while on contract?

The best approach to jury duty when you are unable to attend due to a contracted obligation is to contact the court with a copy of your contract and asked to be excused.

Here is a sample letter:
Office of the Jury Commissioner
City, State Zip Code
Telephone Number

From: John Doe, # (Jury ID)
5747 West Elm St.
City, State Zip Code

Subject: Permission to be excused from Jury Duty


I am writing this letter to respectively request to be excused from jury duty with your courts due to current contractual obligations.

As evidenced by the attached contract with _______________ (name of Employing Agency). I am currently out of the state and contracted as a Travel Nurse at ___________ from ______ to ________ .

If you have any questions or require further documentation, I can be reached at (000) 000-0000.

Thank you for your time and consideration with this matter.
