Pay Scales

The Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) strives to maintain a competitive pay structure for its employees. The JCDH operates on a pay grade system where each job is assigned to a pay grade based on prevalent market rates. Each pay grade provides a pay range based on a step system where employees within a given job are hired at a step within the assigned pay grade commensurate with the employee's qualifications and available funds for the position. Employees progress through the steps of the pay grade over time based on successful job performance.

The JCDH maintains two separate pay schedules: General Pay Schedule and Medical Pay Schedule. Most JCDH jobs are assigned to the General Pay Schedule. Jobs that consist of positions that are medical in nature and may have patient contact are assigned to the Medical Pay Schedule.
