Retain the top portion, "NOTICE TO EMPLOYER"; this should be given to your place of employment, supervisor, or Human Resources Department.

The right of a trial by jury is the privilege and duty of every person in the United States. This right is guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Nevada, which provides "the right of trial by Jury shall be secured to all and remain inviolate forever."
"The American system of trial by jury is unique. No other nation relies so heavily on ordinary citizens to make its most important decisions about law, business practice and personal liberty - even death. Ideally, Americans take their participation seriously lest they someday stand before their peers seeking justice." -- Stephen J. Adler, journalist and author
