Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

As 90% of pharmacists essentially function as retail employees/clerks for Big Pharmacy chains/ box stores etc, all employee pharmacists should enjoy all of the privileges that their fellow clerks/cashiers etc enjoy. All exemptions for pharmacists must be removed. The present situation of pharmacists working 12 or 16 hours at a stretch without a meal break or indeed a washroom break is barbaric. It is also very unsafe for the public that OCP is supposed to be concerned about. Big Pharmacy Retail has been exploiting pharmacists for a long time and this must stop now.
