Salaries & Wages

Most state salaries are based on a monthly-compensation rate by job classification, although some temporary positions are based on hourly rates. Additionally, most state employees are paid on a semi-monthly pay period (on the 15th and last day of the month). DCH employees qualify to have their paychecks deposited directly into their bank accounts through the direct deposit program.

New employees are usually hired between the minimum and midpoint salary rate for their job classification.

Employees can check their payroll, deductions, and leave balance on the password-protected Employee Self-Service (ESS) module via the Team Georgia website.
