For finding out second highest salary can use this query:
Select max(Emp_Salary) from Employer
where Emp_Salary not in(Select max(Emp_Salary) from Employer)

to find n highest salary u can write this simple code

select top 1 salary from (select distinct top n salary from emp order by salary desc) a order by salary

here 'n' means your required number i.e 2nd or 3rd highest salary
