Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 21, 2017

I work 13 hour shifts and sometimes have to eat standing up in between checking prescriptions. You have us doing more and more yet neglect our basic human rights. I find it appalling that pharmacists don’t get breaks regulated by law. And we should get overtime pay as well. It makes no sense to have pharmacists exempt from overtime pay, if the hours are reached the employer would have to pay up.. just like at most other jobs. As our governing body OCP should be less concerned about prescribing rights, immunizations, medscheck, etc and should start being more concerned about the welfare of the individual pharmacists who are working themselves ragged. Instead of implementing new ways to report errors, do something to reduce the errors from happening in the first place..
