Employees are to continue to work remotely through the end of May 2020. The District's decision on when to reopen NOCCCD offices will be guided by state and federal regulations. Social distancing and enhanced cleaning procedures will continue to be in effect as long as the crisis continues.
Only employees who are scheduled to report to work should be on campus or in the office. Employees who have a non-scheduled need to be on campus or in the office should coordinate with their Immediate Management Supervisor and Campus Safety, following campus-identified processes.
District administration has been working with United Faculty, CSEA, and Adjunct Faculty United to draft MOU's to cover any working conditions that have changed or will be expected to change due to the COVID-19 crisis for a temporary period. The MOU's with CSEA and Adjunct Faculty United have been signed and the District is close to an agreement on the MOU language with United Faculty.

In an effort to support those who are most affected by this crisis, for a temporary period, employees who have COVID-19 health-related issues—such as the employee identifying with a vulnerable population, becoming symptomatic or testing positive for the virus, and/or caring for a sick family member—will not be required to use sick leave for their absence.

|Meetings and Events||
On March 12, 2020, Governor Newsom issued an Executive Order that significantly restricts public gatherings. On March 17, 2020, the Orange County Health Office issued an Executive Order prohibiting all public and private gatherings of any number of people, with some very limited exceptions. Consistent with these advisories, all District and campus gatherings are being postponed or cancelled. At the local level, all meetings are being assessed and, where possible, will be conducted via Zoom or conference call or, if non-essential, be postponed or cancelled.
All non-essential travel is suspended for District employees until further notice. For employees who have already expended funds on cancelled travel, please contact the District Accounts Payable department.
In order to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the District developed a Temporary Telecommuting Program (TTP). The following document sets temporary telecommuting expectations for employees participating in the TTP during the current health situation.
The below tools and resources are to help employees transitioning to a remote work environment. For questions or assistance, contact the NOCCCD Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employees are invited to participate in a survey to help provide information about the current challenges and areas of support needed in adjusting to this changing work environment. The results will be used to improve the employee telecommuting experience across all campuses and centers within the District.
Employees are to check their email for information regarding timesheets/reporting for classified staff, confidential staff, and managers for the upcoming pay period. Do not send any information pertaining to attendance to the Payroll Department at this time.
|Purchasing & Accounts Payable||
Purchasing and Accounts Payable has altered procedures to align with the Temporary Telecommuting Program. The following documents provide temporary instructions for purchasing activities and invoice/petty cash processing electronically.
