  • Pay for time subpoened to court? Maryland

    Two of our Non-exempt Associates were held up in a bank robbery when they went to drop off a deposit 3 months ago. They are now being subpoened to testify in the case. They want to know if they will be paid for the time they are in court... because the reason they are being subpoened in the first place was b/c of work. Do we have to pay them?

    Since they are representing the company, in effect, I can't think of any legal justification to NOT pay them.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Me either. If they're exempt, they MUST be paid. If they're nonexempt, it's up to the employer, but I can't imagine they would be so insensitive as to not pay them for this. Was this the bank robbery I heard about in downtown Baltimore? I remember that.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
