No. An employer is not required by law to pay employees who are on jury service but many employers do. You should check with your company's human resources department before serving to see if your company pays your salary for days you are a juror. If you do receive your salary while on jury service, you should ask what your employer requires as proof that you served as a juror.
If your employer requires proof of attendance, it is attached to your summons. The clerk will fill out and sign it for you. This is done when you have completed your service and are released from further jury duty.
