Human Resources Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How can an employee change their address?

To use the employee self service, log on to the TMCC website and go to the faculty/staff link. Under the column "Computing", click on Employee Self-Service Login. Enter your EMPLOYEE ID number and assigned PIN number (4-digit number at the bottom your check stub). If you do not have a PIN assigned or don't know your EMPLOYEE ID please contact Human Resources.

How is the Winter Break accounted for on classified leave slips?
According to Nevada Administrative Code 284.5208, #3, a classified employee is expected to exhaust his/her compensatory time balance before he/she uses any available annual leave. This means that even though classified employees are allowed to accumulate compensatory time balances for the Winter Break, these balances are not being "set aside." If a classified employee requests to use annual leave between now and Winter Break, and that same classified employee has a compensatory time balance on his/her leave record, the employee must use the compensatory time before the annual leave.
Any classified employee who is in danger of losing annual leave at the end of the calendar year (year ending balance will exceed 240 hours) should take the annual leave first, before using accumulated compensatory time (NAC 284.539, #4).
What if my normal work days are not Monday through Friday?
If you work a 40 hour work week, regardless of days off, you would put in a leave slip for the 40 hour week indicating your schedule for the work week. You would also indicate you are off both Christmas Day and New Year's Day even if they are normally work days for you.
If the holiday falls on the scheduled day off of a classified employee, the appointing authority may adjust the work schedule of the employee for the week during which the holiday occurs (by substituting another day off, adjusting the work week in which the holiday falls, etc.); credit the employee with straight compensatory time; or pay the employee for the holiday at straight time if he is in paid status during his scheduled shift before the holiday. This pay is in addition to his/her normal week's pay.
When can I change my TMCC employment health benefits?
Health benefits can be changed during the yearly open enrollment and if a qualifying event occurs. A qualifying event is considered marriage, birth, divorce or if a spouse loses his/her job. Different documents will be required for the qualifying event. Call Human Resources for details.

There must be some verifiable, compelling reason for the lack of completion of the class. A conference between you and the student should be held prior to the due date for grades at the end of the semester.

After the dean makes a decision, a response will be sent via email to you and admissions and records.
Please check with your department chair before issuing an incomplete. If you are teaching an individualized developmental class, consult with your immediate supervisor for special regulations regarding grading in these classes. Students have one semester in which to make up assignments or examinations for a course in which they receive an incomplete. The instructor must submit the card to change the incomplete to a grade by the same date that final grades are due for the semester. Summer session is not defined as a semester for this purpose.
How do TMCC instructors change a student's grade?
If you discover an error, or feel the grade should be changed after grades have been entered, submit a grade change card by contacting your division/department administrative assistant.

Faculty members may access their class lists through MyTMCC. Every student in the class MUST be on the class list. A student in the class that is not on the class list must complete registration before attending class.
What do TMCC instructors do if a student asks to be added to their class?
Students may add classes anytime during the published registration period. Late starting classes may be added using MyTMCC up until the published start date of the class.

You may not add a student yourself. Contact your department chair and/or department administrative assistant for help.

Instructors are required to attend every regularly scheduled class session. If you know ahead of time that you will be absent, contact your division/department chair or coordinator.
If you are unable to teach at the last minute due to illness or an emergency, contact your division/department chair or department administrative assistant to post a notice on the canceled class Web page, post a sign on the door and call students if there is enough time given and you may also want to send your students an email through grade book.
If you must cancel a class before 8:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m. on the day of class, please contact the academic support center at 775-673-7000 for Dandini Campus, Meadowood Center at 775-829-9004, High Tech Center at Redfield at 775-850-4000 and IGT Applied Technology Center at 775-856-5300.

What do TMCC instructors do if they have a student with a disability?
The faculty member can privately and tactfully refer a potential student to the Disability Resource Center (DRC) who will determine if they qualify for services. The DRC website offers a wealth of information to educate faculty and prospective students, downloadable forms and a link to contact the DRC directly to schedule a confidential intake interview. Some students with disabilities may elect not to register at the DRC, which is a personal choice. Non-registered DRC students are not entitled to receive free accommodations or services at TMCC.
Faculty should not provide accommodations directly to students who are not registered at the DRC. This protects both the college and students requesting services. The professionally trained DRC staff is responsible for evaluating presented documentation in order to determine if a student qualifies for services, and which services are appropriate in light of their disability. After the DRC staff assigns accommodations, they assist to ensure services are offered in a timely manner.
The course instructor will be notified by a DRC generated hard copy service letter which will be delivered by the student to the faculty member. Alternately, the services letter may be sent by the DRC staff through an email correspondence. This letter will outline assigned accommodations. Faculty members are encouraged to correspond with the DRC staff when questions regarding accommodations arise.
Faculty will include in their class syllabus each semester the following statement:
Qualified, self-identified students with documented disabilities have the right to free accommodations to ensure equal access to educational opportunities at Truckee Meadows Community College. For assistance, contact TMCC's Disability Resource Center.
How do TMCC instructors get copies made?
There are currently 24 Xerox multi-function machines located around TMCC. Each of these machines is set up to copy, print, fax and scan to email. A five-digit PIN is required to access any of these functions. Xerox PINs are assigned by central services. Each PIN is unique and issued to an individual, not a department or program. To obtain a PIN, an authorized email by your departmental support person or supervisor must be sent to central services. A printed confirmation letter will be sent to you once the PIN has been issued. This code number is given only to you, and is not to be used for personal copying. Please plan ahead to allow adequate time to make copies.
The Copy Center offers a full range of copy services: copying, in black on white, full color copies, comb and thermal binding, folding, envelope stuffing, both single and triple hole punching, stapling, laminating and booklet making. Personal employee and student copying services are available and can be paid for at the time of service. For assistance or more information, please contact the Copy Center.
What do TMCC instructors do if they need supplies?

What do I do if I don't normally work 40 hours a week?
Plan to put in leave for hours you normally work each week, or request to work at the Meadowood site on your normally scheduled days off.
All part-time classified employees must be compensated with a cash payment when they work additional regular hours. These are defined as any hours worked up to full time, which is up to 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week, whichever comes first. There is no such thing as "straight" compensatory time. When a part-time classified employee works additional regular hours and is paid for them, that employee earns additional annual leave and sick leave as well as additional retirement service credit. It may be beneficial to alter a part-time employee's work schedule to include at least one 8-hour day. This will allow the part-time employee to work in overtime status more easily and provide him/her with the same opportunity to accrue compensatory time as the full-time employee. Contact human resources if you have questions regarding Winter Break hours for part-time employees.
Student employees and administrative and academic faculty may not earn compensatory time. Faculty on 'B' contracts are not contracted to work during the Winter Break week.
What do I do if I'm a classified employee and I have not earned enough annual leave or compensatory time for winter break?
See also: Winter Break Guidelines (Memo)
Only those classified employees who have been employed by the State of Nevada (including TMCC) for more than six consecutive months are eligible to use their accrued annual leave. If by the time the Winter Break occurs, you don't have six months of continuous employment, you must make other arrangements to remain in paid status during the break or to continue to work.
Leave without pay is another option for classified employees who either don't have enough accrued leave or who choose not to use accrued leave. However, employees should be aware of the fact that there are a number of benefits affected by taking leave without pay, and that the use of leave without pay should be considered very carefully. First, if a classified employee is in unpaid status, the entire shift preceding the holiday, he/she is ineligible for holiday pay. Also, any time a classified employee is on leave without pay, his/her leave accrual is reduced for the month on a pro-rata basis. Service credit for retirement purposes is also reduced for the month. The Public Employees Retirement System will only credit an employee with time in paid status.
Can I use a combination of options to request leave for the Winter Break?
Yes, you may. Simply indicate the hours and the type of leave to be used on your leave form.
If I want or need to work during the Winter Break, what should I do?
Talk with your supervisor first, and then complete the Winter Break Approval form (when it becomes available), indicating when you will be working at the Meadowood site.
How do I earn compensatory time to use during the Winter Break?
Working additional hours for the accrual of compensatory time requires the agreement of both the supervisor and the employee in writing before the time is worked. Working compensatory time will be helpful in allowing staff to get caught up on work in advance of the college's Winter Break, thus minimizing the burden of lost work time. All departments are encouraged to do so for this specific purpose.
