Employee Salaries 100% open

Buffalo, NY

What data is expected?

Annual salary information including base pay and overtime pay for all active, permanent employees. Employee salary data show the public how individual staff positions are compensated, and help taxpayers hold city staff accountable for the work the are paid to do. Transparent publication of this dataset can also identify and disincentivize corrupt hiring or compensation in government.

Note that some cities may list only directors and high-level employee salaries. This will not fulfill the requirement for Employee Salaries data for Census purposes. (More info)
