Got a letter and questionnaire saying I may be called in for try duty. I know if I'm selected and paid anything, I would have to report that to Marvin as earnings, but how will all of this affect my UI benefits? Will I need to tell Marvin that I was not able/available for the week/weeks in question if I am selected? I still plan on applying to jobs those weeks, just not sure how they view jury duty and what I need to do to make sure nothing gets screwed up, lol.

Thanks

Google "michigan unemployment jury duty" look at first link. Your system has a name, albeit they could improve on Marvin. Wow, cool!

Yeah, I tried looking all over the UIA website, so I guess I just still say I'm able and available, and then report any earnings I may get from jury duty? This is interesting as it is my first time ever being called for jury duty.

I would be careful with that, as you will not be "available" for work if you are at Jury Duty.

If you are called, you are legally obligated to show up. So, I would do further research and figure out the law.

I can't seem to find any concrete info for Michigan on this, but I have found info from other states that says that they consider you able and available while performing jury duty. Guess I will have to see how it goes and if I get called to show up for jury duty I'll have to spend the 3 hours on hold to talk to someone at the UI office.

In CA, as far as I know, you have to report any Jury Duty pay and you have to claim differently. If I recall, you have to turn in the paper claim form. But that is in CA and I am not sure about other states.

Is the jury duty stipend considered "pay" or reimbursement for expenses and meals? That's how MD terms it so employers can't take it from employees called for duty.

Here in California my county allows you to request a deferment on jury duty, of sorts, to a date up to three months in the future. Check and see if you have the same option-it gives you some play time.
