Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Public  ·  Nov. 22, 2017

Every person working in Ontario should be afforded reasonable standards of employment, a healthy workplace and dignity. How can a profession dedicated to the health and safety of others allow themselves (or those who work for them) to be denied basic self-care, hygiene and safety? It has been proven that regular, short breaks improve efficiency and reduce errors. I do not want someone who is responsible for handling medications that are essential to my life to be suffering from low blood sugar, dehydration, unmet personal hygiene needs or fatigue. From what I see in my travels through the major chains, store profit come before all else. My health needs are subservient to the ever-greater need for new income streams. My trust in this profession has fallen significantly and continues to fall. What has happened to professional ethical standards?
