German term or phrase:Besoldungslaufbahn
Die früheren Laufbahnen der Vertragsbediensteten stellten insbesondere im Akademiker- und Maturantenbereich keine voll ausgebauten Besoldungslaufbahnen dar und waren weder mit Beamtenlaufbahnen noch mit Laufbahnen von Arbeitnehmern in der Privatwirtschaft vergleichbar.
Explanation: Just to offer further input. "Schedule" used in this way may be strictly U.S., in the sense of defined pay grades or tax tables and forms. The former career tracks of these ... employees, particularly in academia and ?, were not associated with fully structured salary schedules and were not comparable with the career progression patterns either of civil servants or of employees in private enterprise. - Besoldung is a public sector term, so perhaps compensation would be preferably to salary.
