A job classification is a designation assigned as part of a system that is used to compare and assess jobs.
Comparisons are made by classifying positions based on predetermined grades, which are given specific pay ranges and explanations. Job classifications are intended to allow for overall evaluations, rather than on-site specifics and are governed by United States Code in chapter 51 of title 5. The classifications are based on pay scale, duties, responsibilities and qualifications. The purpose of such comparisons is to populate a general schedule of job definitions and to ensure equal pay for equal work throughout the labor force.
