Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 23, 2017

As a pharmacist who has worked in community for many years and then switched to hospital, I see the inhumanity in expecting pharmacists to work anywhere from 8 to 12 hours, with no dedicated lunch break or coffee breaks. The only break being a rushed trip to use the restroom. Pharmacy owners/associates should be mandated to provide coverage for pharmacists to take a lunch break, either by covering themselves or having overlapping staff. This will reduce pharmacist fatigue/errors and burnout and improve the workday balance for the pharmacist.
