According to Ohio Revised Code Section 125.20, the Department of Administrative Services must make state employee salary information available to the public. This new section of the Ohio Revised Code was passed by the General Assembly in H.B. 1 (the FY10-FY11 operating budget) on July 17, 2009. The employee salary reports contain the name of each state employee, his/her agency, position title, and gross pay from the pay period indicated.
Please note that “gross pay” may include, but is not limited to, the employee’s regular hourly wages, overtime, pay supplements, settlements, accrued leave cash-outs, or other pay related benefits owed to state employees. Multiple or cumulative payroll entries for one employee may have occurred within the pay period. Due to various exceptions occurring every pay period, some amounts in the “gross pay” column may not equal the employee’s hourly rate multiplied by the hours worked per pay period.
“Gross pay” does not include pre-tax deductions, including those deductions required for ten cost savings days in fiscal years 2010 and 2011. All state employees have the equivalent of 3.076 hours (or roughly 3.8% reduction in pay) deducted from each pay period, with the exception of employees of the Secretary of State’s Office, who have 1.538 hours deducted from each pay period (for five cost savings days in each fiscal year); employees of the Auditor of State, who have taken a 2% reduction in pay; and employees and elected officials of the legislative and judicial branches, who were not affected by any statutory pay reductions.
Reports are listed according to the last date within the two-week pay period. Employees are paid two weeks after the end of the pay period, and reports are not available until after paychecks are issued.
*Pay period includes leave conversion payouts for some employees.
