Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 22, 2017

As pharmacists working in multiple work environments, I think it’s important to have a standards act that ensure fair and equitable treatment. Breaks are essential part of making sure a pharmacist and the pharmacy team is working under optimal conditions. This is important to ensure proper patient care and safety. Many times errors are made solely due to fatigue and exhaustion. There should also be a minimum wage for pharmacists, there is more demand on the pharmacist to operate with more work and less help. This also impacts the quality of care given to a patient and safety aspects. Pharmacists seem to be treated as second classs citizens when it comes to health professionals as a group. It feels like we have no recourse when changes to our detriment. It seems like the employer/management has all the say as to how we practice and under which conditions.
