State Workforce

About Human Resources

The Chief Human Resource Office and the Enterprise Human Resources Division within the Department of Administrative Services provide direction and services to state agencies in maintaining a stable and qualified workforce for Oregon state government. Its activities include classification and compensation, HR management and consultation, HR systems, labor relations, statewide recruitment and training.

Under the law, some agencies have authority to manage their workforce independent of DAS administrative rules, policies, and personnel reporting systems. Examples include Oregon Lottery, Oregon Judicial Department, the Oregon University System and Oregon's semi-independent boards and commissions.

Salaries: Oregon Lottery

Oregon State Lottery: Annual Employee Salary Reports

The Lottery separated from the State’s payroll system on June 1, 2013. This was done to improve productivity and efficiency of the Lottery’s payroll process, by partnering with Ceridian, a payroll service provider who provides an automated time and attendance system, and a Human Resource/Payroll system.  

These reports reflect the annual salary rate based on assigned primary duties and work effort at the time. They do not include payments for overtime, shift differential, benefits, vacation payout, etc. Salary data may not reconcile to a full-time annualized salary rate or actual wages paid. Reasons include fluctuations in work effort, and terms\conditions of employment that can change over time.   

These reports are machine readable and the most recent reports are provided below.
