The District Court
Sub: Request to excuse from jury duty.
We are the employer of Mr. Henry Black, aged 52 years, who has received a summons dated 01.03.2023 from your office in context of jury duty to serve as juror in the matter of road accident.
Mr. Henry is employed with us at the profile of Marketing Manager. He is the head of the Marketing Department and because this is our season time, he needs to be present at the office on all the weekends to lead his department. There is no other employee in the company who can fill in for him as he is the one who heads and manages the yearly marketing program for our company.
Moreover, his absence from the office due to his jury duty, he will not be entitled for any compensation from the organization which would lead to financial challenges for him.
We have deeply discussed the matter with him. His absence from work is going to get very difficult for the company to manage the marketing program for the year as well as will cause him a tough time to deal with his finances.
We are writing this request letter on behalf of him to kindly excuse him from the jury duty considering the present circumstances. We would await your response on the same.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at 9898989898 for any further details on the matter.
Thanking you in anticipation.
