Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 30, 2017

Pharmacists should be included and protected by labour laws. It is not unreasonable for pharmacists to get a 30 minute break when working a 12 hour shift. Most pharmacies offer delivery services and if the patient cannot wait for their prescription then they would have the option of it being delivered. I have also seen pharmacies like Costco in the US where the break time is posted along with pharmacy hours. Most pharmacists are under a lot of pressure to work alone and multi task with organizations cutting back labor. It would be highly appreciated if we were given a short break for lunch and to use the washroom.
