Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 29, 2017

Pharmacists in retail environments are being taken advantage of. There are enough pharmacist available to provide coverage for breaks. Overtime should be paid as such. Many pharmacist are working in conditions that create safety issues for themselves and patients. Inclusion into the ESA would ensure large employers are not taking advantage of these situations. The pharmacy environment has changed, there are multiple pharmacies in most areas. If a pharmacy does need to close for 30 minutes, it shouldn't affect patients. If they need mediation that quickly it likely isn't something that should be treated in a retail store. Most pharmacies offer free delivery as well, so a drop off slot for their prescription and free delivery wouldn't even cause any inconvenience.
