Rave Alert is Clackamas Community College's phone, text message and email emergency notification system. It allows you to quickly receive emergency communications and other important information via phone, text message and email. Rave Alert system will NOT charge you in any way. You should review your profile periodically to ensure that it is up to date.

If the college closes for any part of a regular business day, employees will not be expected to use their paid leave unless previously scheduled. If, however, the college is open and the employee chooses not to attend due to hazardous conditions, then the employee will submit a leave request to a supervisor. In the case of a midday closure, employees need not submit a leave request.

Web Time Entry and Leave Requests

CCC uses an electronic time sheet and leave request system. You will enter your time monthly, between pay periods running from the 20th to the 19th, and submit for supervisory approval. Employees are paid on the last working day of the month.

Part-time faculty are paid on assignment contracts (stipends). Your stipends are viewable through myClackamas/Employee Information/myStipends. If you have questions regarding your stipends, contact the administrative assistant in your department.

Hazard Communications

The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has revised the way employers will communicate hazardous material information to employees. In turn, Clackamas Community College is required to implement this Hazard Communication Standard for general industry to align with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labeling of chemicals. The keys changes in the Hazard Communication Standard affect both chemical suppliers and employers whose employees may be exposed to hazardous chemicals. As a community college that has exposure to a myriad of chemicals in various areas around campus, we are REQUIRED by Oregon OSHA to train everyone in these changes.

Here are two files for your review. You will be receiving an email from the director of Campus Safety to complete the online training through Safe Colleges.

FERPA has to do with the release of student information.

As an institution, we are obligated to follow these guidelines.
