Classification & Compensation

UF’s Classification and Compensation system provides a basis of common understanding through a system of class titles, and is designed to ensure that staff positions similar in duties and responsibilities are grouped together. The classification and compensation practices also facilitate administration of funds allocated for wages and salaries in an equitable and legal manner.

In addition, our classification and compensation system:

  1. Helps maintain an “equal pay for equal work” policy—thus avoiding inequitable treatment of employees
  2. Aids in recruitment by establishing meaningful qualification requirements and salaries
  3. Aids in clarifying and improving organizational structure
  4. Facilitates better employee-management relations by ensuring clarity about the expected job
