Jurors in Washington state receive a per diem attendance payment plus mileage reimbursement.
Private employers. Washington state law does not require employers to pay employees for absences due to jury duty. Although not required to do so, many employers do pay all employees called to jury duty, regardless of exempt or nonexempt status. Some courts pay jurors a small fee, and the employer may offset any amounts received by an employee for a particular week against the salary due for that particular week.
Public employers. Public employers are encouraged to pay their nonexempt employees serving on jury duty as well as not to deduct any jury fees.
