Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 25, 2017

I think that we, as pharmacists, should have the right to have regular breaks in order to function at the best capacity and prevent mistakes. Patients should be educated that the pharmacist is on break and that his prescription might take longer to fill at the moment. The accuracy of our work, the interactions with our patients, the focus in checking prescriptions and the enthusiasm in doing another medication review will all be improved if we are treated like human beings that need and deserve regular breaks. I think that we should be paid overtime if we work over 44 hours and we should be paid extra if we have to work on statutory holidays.
