Campus SaVE Act

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, or Campus SaVE Act (SaVE), is a 2013 amendment to the federal Jeanne Clery Act. SaVE was designed by advocates along with victims/survivors and championed by a bi-partisan coalition in Congress as a companion to Title IX that will help bolster the response to and prevention of sexual violence in higher education. President Obama signed the measure into law as part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 on March 7, 2013.

SaVE requires colleges and universities, both public and private, participating in federal student aid programs (covering virtually every campus in the United States) to increase transparency about the scope of sexual violence on campus, guarantee victims enhanced rights, provide for standards in institutional conduct proceedings, and provide campus community wide prevention educational programming.

As part of compliance with this act, all employees will be required to complete a training module on this topic. Look for an email from Workplace Answers with directions on how to complete this module. 

Additional information, including victims’ rights, may be found on the following site:

Optional Benefits (Wellington Benefits) Open Enrollment

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Full-time employees:
Open enrollment for your optional benefits will be held from October 20-31, 2014. During this time, each full-time employee will meet individually with a representative from Wellington Benefits in order to choose optional benefits for 2015. Changes made during your appointment will take effect January 1, 2015.
Each department will receive sign-up sheets in order to allow employees to sign up for a time slot. Wellington Benefits representatives will be available at both the downtown and north campuses.
CLICK HERE to download the 2015 Wellington Benefits booklet (PDF). We should also have hard copy booklets available in our office before open enrollment begins.
Some notable information:
  • Dental and vision insurance premiums received no rate increase for 2015.
  • Companion Life has cancelled its life insurance contract with CFCC effective December 31, 2014. Reliance Standard insurance company has agreed to take on our current policyholders under the same terms and rates as Companion Life.
  • Another new term life insurance option is being offered that comes with a long-term care rider. If interested, ask your representative for more details during your meeting. A minimum of 10 employees must sign up for this policy in order for us to accept the contract.
Let me know if you have any initial questions. Joe Manor, HR Technician, is handling the coordination of benefit meetings with department secretaries.


State Health Plan Open Enrollment

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Open enrollment for the State Health Plan begins October 1 and will end October 31, 2014.
If you want to keep your current plan, you will not need to make a new selection.
HOWEVER, if you have the Enhanced 80/20 Plan or the CDHP and want to continue to receive a reduced premium for 2015, you must take action during open enrollment in order to renew your premium discounts. If you do not take action, you will remain on your current plan but lose your discounts and pay the increased premium cost for the entire 2015 plan year.
To renew premium credits, change your plan, or add or drop dependents, log on to:
Retrieve your username and password if you don’t remember it. This is NOT the same username and password as you use for other programs at CFCC. Typically, yourusername is your full first name, first initial of your last name and last 4 digits of your Social Security Number.
I have created a cheat sheet to walk you through the process of updating premium credits.
If you get locked out of your account or have questions, please call or email Allyson Greeson in the HR office.
