This chapter first describes the macro pay system environment in China, in which pay systems evolved after the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was established; second highlights the key areas that have been investigated in current empirical studies on pay practices from an academic perspective such as pay transformation, pay disparity, and pay-performance link; and third provides a case study example of performance related pay (PRP) in China’s public schools. The case study illustrates the pay reform introduced to the public sector particularly the public service units (PSUs) in 2009 with PRP as its central theme.
