Collection: Public employees
Description: Salary data for public employees in Illinois for 2019. Missing data is being treated as blanks. This data was obtained through a public records request to the Illinois State Comptroller's office. According to the Comptroller's office, instances where employees' have blank "position title" columns but filled "total paid" columns are "byproducts of the State issuing back pay to workers who were the subject of a lawsuit brought on by AFSCME." Those without "position title" data have likely retired or otherwise left state employment, so their only pay that year was back pay.
