Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello! I will be reviewing your question and posting a response momentarily; if you have any follow up questions please respond here. Thanks!
An individual employee can be served a subpoena at their residence or at work; there is no requirement to send it to the home office.
A subpoena is a court order so it is served to whom it is addressed;
so if for example an individual has personal knowledge of a situation, that person would be served.If it is an employment situation the employee can then notify the employer and the employer may wish to hire an attorney to review the subpoena and see if there are grounds to object.
But an employer does not supersede the power of the court so for example if the employer instructs employee not to respond, the court can sanction that employee.
