Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

If pharmacists were required to abide by eating period requirements then most small pharmacies would be required to close for lunch time, since the pharmacist will require an uninterrupted eating period. If a pharmacy in a small town closes for an hour and someone comes out of the emergency room or after a procedure and the pharmacy is closed, they may have no method to obtain necessary pain killers. Employment standards would mandate that even if the pharmacist wanted to interrupt their lunch to fill the prescription for the patient, they couldn't. This would not be an uncommon situation in small towns if pharmacists are required to abide by mandated eating periods.
