I want some advice from those that have been through this. It will be my first time being summoned for jury duty and it has caught me at a really awkward time. I have 4 weeks resignation notice to give before transitioning into a new role at a different company and the court appearance has been set for the dead middle of that. It is estimated that they would need me for >16 weeks.
What's the go here, can I get out on account of transitioning into a new job role (which I won't be able to otherwise)?
While I would have been more than happy to help under different circumstances, there is no way I can do it at this time without sacrificing my career.
