    It pays to pay your employees more.

    s1. It pays to pay your employees more.

    I happened to see that sentence and it is very interesting.
    I think the former pay and the latter pay has a different meaning each.
    Is that sentence grammatically correct?

    Yes, it is.

    The first 'pays' means 'is to your advantage'.
