Employee Self Service

Every employee should have a number of "tiles" on their homepage in ctcLink. The tiles will vary depending on your role, employee status, and assigned tasks (such as transactions you are responsible for as part of your job). Here is a list of what is included in the most common tiles for all employees.

Please visit the ctcLink Reference Center for instructions and more detailed information.

Screen reader mode update

The "Enable Screen Reader Mode" option at the ctcLink login page does not automatically activate! The state team is working on a permanent fix, but until then screen reader mode must be enabled manually. Visit the Enable Screen Reader Mode page for instructions.

Onboarding Activities Tile

New employees with receive assigned tasks from Human Resources within the "Onboarding Activities" tile on their homepage.

Time Tile

Within this tile, you can perform a number of functions related to time and leave.

Note: there are two categories of time in ctcLink: 'Elapsed Time' and 'Punch Time.'

Classified Staff use 'Elapsed Time' during initial set-up to indicate total hours worked each day according to their normal schedule.

PT hourly and student workers use 'Punch Time' to enter what time they started, went to lunch, came back from lunch, and left for the day for each shift worked.
