Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Dec. 2, 2017

As a pharmacist, I think that it is the last moment to remove the work place exemptions and return the dignity to our profession. Most of my shifts are 12 hours long without break to eat, use the washroom etc. With the new, extended scope of practice it is even worse. I find myself so overwhelmed with too many tasks that sometimes I have to postpone everything for 10 minutes to recollect. From many of my colleagues I've heard that it is very hard to find a job, and on the other side if you work you are like a slave. No breaks, no wage increase ,long working ours and bitterness that even as health professionals we do not get any appreciation from the province. I was thrilled with this notion to regulate the gray area in our profession, and I fully support the changes.
