Salary Grade Structures

Salary structures are tools used to help administer our compensation programs for staff positions, excluding temporary positions and disqualified individuals (as defined by the IRS).

Individual pay rates are determined based on:

  • Market value of the job
  • The individual’s job-related qualifications
  • An internal assessment of jobs with comparable work (internal equity)
