If employee keeps track (budgeting) how much $ he spends on lunch, & he takes off for jury duty, does the lunch he bought that day, count?

I was wondering since his employer pays him time off for jury duty.  Also, what if the case wraps up early (AFTER he had lunch), and he goes back to work that day.  Does he include that day (or those days) of jury duty when adding up how many days that month he bought lunch, how much money was spent, and divided that amount by the days?

    If it's out of your own pocket, yes, keep track of it.

    If you are not eating in the regular work cafeteria, you don't count that day for your employer's lunch.  You only count lunch when the employer is paying for your lunch (when you are at work).

    If jury duty finishes early and you can get to work at a reasonable time, you are expected to return to work.

    For example, if jury duty ends at 1 and you can get to work by 1:30, you would go to work.

    If jury duty ends at 3 and you wouldn't get to work until 3:45 and your day is over at 5, you wouldn't return to work unless you had an important task you needed to do.

    Just track what you actually spent and what money you actually received.  Seems kinda obvious, I don't really get the question.

    If your employer isn't buying your lunch when you show up to work, they're not going to buy your lunch when you're off at jury duty.

    You would not be expected to return to work if it finished early. The court provides you with lunch.

    Seems a silly Q.
