Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Dec. 4, 2017

The culture in pharmacy around long shifts with no breaks is ridiculous. Breaks for food, bathroom use, mental health should be mandatory in all health professions in the interest of patient care. Long working hours/late nights in the community setting should be an individual decision but should generally be discouraged. There are few if any medical scenarios that cannot wait until the next day. Please remove pharmacists from these archaic exemptions and support best evidence for health and well being. Thank you.
