Abstract

A simple model of the firms' decision to pay workers productivity related pay is tested using individual worker level data from 15 EU member states. We find empirical support for the key hypotheses of Lazear type PRP models which relate to firm size and permanence of employment. Other issues such as the organisation of production and the nature of the product or service were found to be very peripheral to the use of PRP systems across countries.
