Private employers. No Kansas law specifically requires employers to provide leave for employees to serve as witness, but employees may be protected through other statutes, depending on circumstances.
Public employers. State government employees are entitled to leave with pay to comply with a subpoena to appear as a witness.
Retaliation. The Kansas Act Against Discrimination (KAAD) prohibits retaliation against employees for assisting or testifying in support of a KAAD proceeding. The KAAD applies to all employers with four or more employees, including all Kansas government entities, except for nonprofit fraternal or social associations and corporations.
