Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 23, 2017

Safety for the public will NOT be improved by implementing the current EPA. If pharmacists have a reasonable work load, there would be time for breaks, lunch, etc. taken of our own accord. What DOES affect patient safety is company-ordered quotas on rxs/hour, professional services etc. We are constantly being asked to do more, with fewer and fewer labour hours allowed. If I take a lunch break, I will still have the same amount of work to do, but now with 1/2 hour less time to do it in, which is more detrimental to public safety. Our College needs to be addressing employment standards that actually can affect the quality of care we provide and the well-being of the pharmacists providing it.
