TV- en radio interview met advocaat Rob Sies over beleid topinkomens zorg gemeente Rotterdam

Nieuws 14 October 2015

De gemeente Rotterdam wenst de landelijk geldende norm op 1 januari 2016 voor alle topfunctionarissen in de zorg direct in te laten gaan. De zorginstelling die zich daar niet aan houdt ontvangt minder subsidie van de gemeente. In de Wet normering bezoldiging topfunctionarissen publieke en semipublieke sector, beter bekend als de WNT, is juist voorzien in een geleidelijke invoering van deze norm voor reeds bestaande dienstverbanden. Dit is geregeld in het overgangsrecht.

Dat overgangsrecht is opgenomen in de wet om te voorkomen dat de normstelling strijdig zou zijn met Europees recht. De gemeente Rotterdam wijkt nu bewust af van de WNT. De WNT voorziet echter niet in deze decentrale mogelijkheid. Eerder heeft de gemeente Eindhoven dit pad ook willen bewandelen, maar is daarin ‘teruggefloten’ door de Raad van State. De Raad van State heeft in die kwestie geoordeeld dat de gemeente Eindhoven niet via het subsidie-instrument inkomenspolitiek mocht bedrijven. Dat is namelijk voorbehouden aan de Rijksoverheid.
