Information for State Employees

Employee Self Service (ESS)

The Go Live of the IRIS HRM System includes the introduction of the Employee Self Service (ESS) module. ESS allows State employees a convenient way to review various payroll information specific to them through a secure online portal accessible both inside and outside the State network.

Through ESS, employees can:

  • Submit updates to their contact information, including address changes and emergency contacts
  • Create an employee information change request (e.g., change employee last name)
  • View tax withholdings/allowances
  • Check their leave balance
  • Review their performance evaluations
  • View payroll information specific to them

ESS References

A number of reference materials for the use of the ESS Portal have been developed, including:


State Calendars

State Employee Documents Online

SOA employees will continue to have access to the State Employee Documents Online website to review paystubs from pre-IRIS HRM. This site will remain available for up to a year after Go Live.
