    El análisis de las diferencias retributivas entre puestos y niveles –o dispersión retributiva- hatraído más controversias y contradicciones que consensos en la investigación empírica. En este trabajo se intentan resolver algunas de estas cuestiones, elaborando un modelo de investigación que, de manera global e integrada, basándose en las principales perspectivas teóricas –torneo y equidad-, aclare las interrelaciones existentes entre dispersión retributiva y resultados organizacionales, remarcando el papel de los principales factores que moderan dicha relación. Sobre la base de dicho modelo se elaboran proposiciones de investigación y se sugieren posibles líneas futuras de investigación. / Although there are quite a lot of studies that have tried to identify factors shaping pay structures, not many works have showed their effects on organizations. Analysis of compensation differences between jobs and levels –pay dispersion- report more controversies and contradictions than consensus. This study attempts to sort out some of these questions trough a research model based on main theoretical perspectives –tournament and equity- and empirical findings. This model gives support to interrelations between pay dispersion and performance, remarking the role and influence of moderating factors. Based on the model, we propose several research propositions, suggesting possibilities for future studies.
