How much are jurors paid in Queensland?
According to the Juries Act (2007), $712 are available at the start of each day to be split between jurors and reserve jurors/etc at the Sheriffs discretion. Jurors must submit a Juror Allowance Claim Form to collect a share, but the share may be less than $712/number of submitted claims.

How much a jury member is paid depends on the court. In Escambia County, Florida, jurors are paid $15 a day for the first three days, and $30 a day for every day thereafter. Meanwhile, in the United States District Court, Northern District of Florida…
Juror pay is a state by state policy. Some of these policies are: Massachusetts: Perhaps this varies from place to place. I was not paid for jury duty in Massachusetts, but my employer was required to pay me my regular wages for the day. Unemployed jurors in that state can apply for reasonable expenses. California pays jurors $15 every day starting on the second day of service, except employees of governmental entities who receive full…
