Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Public  ·  Nov. 24, 2017

My sister is a pharmacist. I was agast to hear that she often worked 12 - 14 shifts with a bathroom break or a meal break. When I suggested this was against the Canadian Labour code, she said "no, we are professionals". I was a professional in the federal public service for 32 years and I considered this to be an irresponsible labour practice. I all agree that we would like to receive our medications in a timely fashion, but I would also like to be certain I am receiving the correct medication and not something given to me in error because the pharmacist is burnt-out. Please consider the health of our professionals when providing exemptions.
