Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 23, 2017

The majority of pharmacists are employed by large companies and no longer treated like the professionals that these exemptions were intended for. With no discretion over safe work loads and hours of consecutive work, how is it possibly in the public's best interests to allow corporations to overwork and abuse those charged with safeguarding their health? Waiting an extra half hour for a prescription is a minor inconvenience compared to the serious implications of serious dispensing errors arising from an exhausted and hungry pharmacist losing focus. There is no possible public interest served by maintains these antiquated exemptions. The only ones they really benefit are Loblaw, Rexall, et al.
