Jury duty, termination, and paycheck

Spokane, WA |

I had jury duty on a mon and was fired that fri. Employer wanted check from the courts in return for my regular wages. Since I was fired before I got the check from the court, former employer wants me to go in and pay them the $10 so I can get paid for the monday I served jury duty. Can't they just subtract $10 from my paycheck so I don't have to go in to my former place of employment?

You should check with an employment attorney in your case. It may be illegal in your state to fire someone who was on jury duty.
