Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 23, 2017

I work 12 hours shifts and I get to use the washroom once during my shift if I am lucky. On weekends we do not have a technician so 9-10 hours of working alone with no washroom break. Most days I get to eat my lunch between 2 to 4pm and I eat it so quickly in 5 minutes so that I do not get interrupted by another patient. I think we definitely deserve some respect and should NOT be excluded from having a break or being paid if we have to stay to finish work. We deserve a much needed break at least 15-30 minutes to eat and use the washroom and clear our mind. During this time the Pharmacy could remain open, but the patients just have to wait a little longer.
