What to expect during jury duty
Compensation for your time
Jurors earn $10 per day of service. We fully reimburse you for your train, light rail, bus, ferry, or water taxi fare. If you drive to the King County Courthouse and park, you will be given a mileage allowance and access to free parking. Checks are sent out every two weeks, so your check may not reflect your entire compensation. Please wait at least two weeks after your last day of service for your final check.
State law (RCW 2.36.165) requires all employers to allow their employees to respond to jury duty summons. However, employers do not have to pay the employee while they are serving on a jury.
