Notes: In most cases, a pay plan (system) is a two dimensional matrix of pay rates: one dimension providing a series of different pay rates or ranges corresponding to differences in grade (or level, class, rank, or pay band of work) and the other dimension providing a series of pay rates or a range of rates within a grade. These rates may be a function of length of service in the grade or of performance ratings. Note that the term "pay plan" is intended to include other terms such as pay system, pay schedule, pay scale, pay rates, basic pay schedule, statutory pay system, wage schedule, wage system, wage schedules and rates, regular wage schedule, special wage schedule and rates, and so forth.
