“Healthcare Workers Minimum Wage Ordinance” Provides Los Angeles City Healthcare Workers With Minimum Wage of $25 on August 13, 2022 and Rising in 2024

The "Healthcare Workers Minimum Wage Ordinance" signed by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on July 7, 2022, increases minimum wages for non-supervisory/managerial employees of privately-owned healthcare facilities within the city, effective August 13, 2022. The ordinance aims to fairly compensate healthcare workers for their efforts during the pandemic and addresses concerns such as increased job vacancies and workers considering leaving the profession. It covers various types of healthcare facilities and a wide range of positions, excluding supervisors and managers. The ordinance prohibits retaliation against healthcare workers and prohibits employers from offsetting the minimum wage increase by reducing pay rates, benefits, hours, or increasing charges for parking or work-related materials. Employers should review pay practices to ensure compliance and may seek a short waiver under certain circumstances. Consulting healthcare counsel is recommended for further guidance on compliance with the ordinance. Click here for article.
