Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Dec. 5, 2017

I believe that pharmacist should be treated the same as everyone else at the work place. I love my job and have always make myself available to any customers. I always get paged when I am in the washroom and I rush back to the pharmacy right away. As far as I understand, there is no other regulated health professionals that do not take breaks. Doctors and nurses take breaks and I don't think patients' care suffer. I think it will reduce the stress level and in the end, improve patient care. Pharmacist can take breaks in multiple shorter increments so that patients do not have to wait longer than 15 minutes, for example. It is up to the employer and pharmacist to work out what is in the best interest of patients and balance it with fair and equitable treatment of the pharmacist. I strongly support that pharmacist should be removed from the exemption.
