  • How much do I get paid for jury duty?

    Pursuant to Iowa law, jurors receive $30 a day for serving up to seven days and are entitled to reimbursement for travel to and from the courthouse and for parking expenses.  Jurors receive $50 per day for each day that exceeds seven days of service.  While employers are not required to pay the salaries of employees on jury duty, many do so in recognition of the importance of jury service.
