WITH JURY SERVICE PROGRAM
Contracts are subject to the provisions of the County's
ordinance entitled Contractor Employee Jury Service ("Jury
Service Program") as codified in Sections 2.203.010
through 2.203.090 of the Los Angeles County Code.
Employee Jury Service Policy.
Contractor has demonstrated to the County's satisfaction
either that Contractor is not a "Contractor"
as defined under the Jury Service Program (Section 2.203.020
of the County Code) or that Contractor qualifies for
an exception to the Jury Service Program (Section 2.203.070
of the County Code), Contractor shall have and adhere
to a written policy that provides that its Employees
shall receive from the Contractor, on an annual basis,
no less than five days of regular pay for actual jury
service. The policy may provide that Employees deposit
any fees received for such jury service with the Contractor
or that the Contractor deduct from the Employee's regular
pay the fees received for jury service.
For purposes of this Section, "Contractor"
means a person, partnership, corporation or other entity
which has a contract with the County or a subcontract
with a County contractor and has received or will receive
an aggregate sum of $50,000 or more in any 12-month
period under one or more County contracts or subcontracts.
"Employee" means any California resident who
is a full time employee of Contractor. "Full time"
means 40 hours or more worked per week, or a lesser
number of hours if the lesser number is a recognized
industry standard and is approved as such by the County.
If Contractor uses any subcontractor to perform services
for the County under the Contract, the subcontractor
shall also be subject to the provisions of this Section.
The provisions of this Section shall be inserted into
any such subcontract agreement and a copy of the Jury
Service Program shall be attached to the agreement.
Contractor is not required to comply with the Jury Service
Program when the Contract commences, Contractor shall
have a continuing obligation to review the applicability
of its "exception status" from the Jury Service
Program, and Contractor shall immediately notify County
if Contractor at any time either comes within the Jury
Service Program's definition of "Contractor"
or if Contractor no longer qualifies for an exception
to the Program. In either event, Contractor shall immediately
implement a written policy consistent with the Jury
Service Program. The County may also require, at any
time during the Contract and at its sole discretion,
that Contractor demonstrate to the County's satisfaction
that Contractor either continues to remain outside of
the Jury Service Program's definition of "Contractor"
and/or that Contractor continues to qualify for an exception
to the Program.
violation of this Section of the contract may constitute
a material breach of the Contract. In the event of such
material breach, County may, in its sole discretion,
terminate the Contract and/or bar Contractor from the
award of future County contracts for a period of time
consistent with the seriousness of the breach.
