The next increase to the minimum wage rate for non-hotel employees in West Hollywood will now be on January 1, 2025. The new rate for 2025 will be posted by October 1, 2024, on www.weho.org/wage.

    As of July 1, 2024, the minimum wage rate for hotel employees in West Hollywood will be $19.61 per hour and will be in effect through June 30, 2025.

    As of July 1, 2024, the minimum wage rate for non-hotel employees in West Hollywood will continue to be $19.08 per hour and will be in effect through December 31, 2024.

    The West Hollywood Minimum Wage Ordinance applies to any person who performs at least two (2) hours of work per week within the geographic boundaries of the City of West Hollywood.

    Effective April 1, 2024, the minimum wage for fast food restaurants in the State of California is now $20 per hour.

    A one-year waiver may be granted to businesses that are able to demonstrate that compliance with the payment of the Citywide Minimum Wage would force the business to: file bankruptcy or shut down, reduce its workforce by more than twenty percent (20%), or curtail its employees’ total hours by more than thirty percent (30%).

    A one-year, one-time waiver may be granted to businesses that are able to demonstrate that compliance with the leave provisions of the Citywide Minimum Wage would force the business to: file bankruptcy or shut down, reduce its workforce by more than twenty percent (20%), or curtail its employees’ total hours by more than thirty percent (30%).

    Alternatively, a three-month waiver may be granted to businesses that are able to demonstrate that compliance with the leave provisions of the Citywide Minimum Wage would cause an implementation hardship due to the business’s existing payroll and human resources processes and platforms the business has in place. Businesses may apply for up to two three-month waivers (maximum of six months).

    To file a waiver application, business owners must follow these steps:

    1. Notify all your employees, in writing, of the business’s intent to file a Waiver Application.
    2. Compile all required documents— incomplete applications will be denied.
    3. Submit the Waiver Application and all required documents by selecting the waiver for payment of minimum wage or leave provisions:
      • Payment of Minimum Wage – Waiver Application
      • Leave Provisions – Waiver Application

    I can’t think of a better group of workers due this amount or more, given the work they do and that hotel rates are so high in the city. For example, the Edition has its rooms starting at nearly $800 a night!
