A job grade is a grouping that encompasses positions with the same or similar values in order to assign compensation rates and structures.
The range of pay for every job within a job grade is traditionally the same, with a minimum and maximum rate being established. Job grades help determine pay scales for jobs on a national level and can help to ensure equal compensation for equal work based on federal guidelines. Job grades are similar to job classifications and are founded on broad categories, rather than specific positions at individual employers. Nationally, companies use the same grades to make comparisons possible and to determine allocation patterns.Related terms:
