West Hollywood COVID-19 Webinar Series: Job Assistance Programs

About this event

The City of West Hollywood is taking extensive and proactive actions to support our businesses and workers during this unprecedented time due to COVID-19.  

The City of West Hollywood has issued an Emergency Executive Order aimed at assisting businesses and workers and has produced a toolkit for businesses affected by the coronavirus crisis. Information is available on the City's website at www.weho.org/coronavirus where there are links to Small Business Resources and Labor and Workforce Resources.

For the past 35 years, the City of West Hollywood has collaborated with numerous Social Services Providers connecting the community to local job opportunities.  JVS So Cal’s WeHo Works program, Transgender Economic Empowerment Project (TEEP), and Trans Can Work (TCW) will present their organizations' services tailored specifically to the West Hollywood Community. Their specialties on one-on-one consultation and career and employment services have increased job placement rates for West Hollywood community members.  

The California Employment Development Department (EDD) is the state’s employment agency. The EDD will present a variety of support services to people who have lost their jobs or have had their hours reduced due to the impacts of COVID-19 in California. #WeHoStrong
