Broward County’s pay plan provides job classification and pay grade information only for agencies that are under the County Administrator's authority. Information for the constitutional offices (Broward Sheriff's Office, Supervisor of Elections, Property Appraiser, 17th Judicial Circuit Court, Clerk of the Courts, State Attorney’s Office and Public Defender’s Office) is not included. Neither is information for the County Attorney's Office or the County Auditor. Boards and councils that act in an advisory capacity to the Board of County Commissioners, such as the Broward County Planning Council, are also not included in the pay plan.


Class Code

The first letter of the Class Code denotes which employee group the job classification belongs to. Employee groups include the following collective bargaining units:

  • B - Blue Collar
  • D - Unrepresented
  • E - Unrepresented
  • M - Mass Transit
  • N - Unrepresented
  • P - GSA Professional
  • Q - Port Supervisory
  • T - Port Maintenance
  • U - Port Non-Supervisory
  • W - White Collar
  • X - GSA Supervisory

FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) Code

The FLSA Code denotes whether or not the job classification is exempt (“E”) or non-exempt (“N”) from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Employees in exempt classifications work as many hours as necessary to get the job done. They do not receive overtime, either in time off or in cash compensation. Exempt employees do receive administrative leave, also known as “admin leave” or “job basis leave”, not to exceed 40 hours in a calendar year. Employees in non-exempt classifications must receive overtime (either pay or time off) for hours worked in excess of 40 in a standard work week.

Salary Grade/Living Wage

The Salary Grade denotes the number of the pay grade associated with the classification description. Employees in benefit eligible full-time and part-time positions shall be paid no less than $12.38 per hour, the Living Wage rate in Broward County as of January 1, 2018. For employees in benefit eligible positions, the living wage adjustment will be paid in accordance with the employee’s collective bargaining agreement, if applicable. There are certain classifications with entry level hourly pay rates that reflect the labor market, but are below that of the current living wage. Nevertheless, benefit eligible employees in those positions shall be paid no less than the current living wage. For additional information, review the Living Wage Ordinance.
