Highest Paid Employees – Transparent Help

Highest Paid Employees


On the Highest Paid Employees page, select the entity and the desired fiscal year. This provides a table of the top paid employees in the state or selected entity.  By default the system displays a table of the State’s top paid employees (2014-2019) sorted by highest wages.

To change the search, simply select the year and entity or entities that you want included in the search of highest paid employees. If you want more details about any listed employee, click on an amount in the WAGES, BENEFITS or TOTAL COMPENSATION columns and details about the employee and employer will be listed.

Please note that the State and all other government entities only report payroll annually (3 months after the end of their calendar year).
