Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards ActPharmacy Technician · Nov. 17, 2017
•Hours of work and eating periods; I believe that pharmacists should work 8 hour shifts, with a lunch, as it will keep their mind fresh and able to do the work. I just personally believe that a 12 hour shift can be very draining mentally and physically. •Overtime pay; I believe over time should be awarded if they have worked more than 44 hours per pay period.
•Would either removing or maintaining these exemptions have an impact on access to timely pharmacy care in your community? Would either removing or maintaining these exemptions have an impact on the quality of pharmacy care patients receive? I do not believe this would impact the care the patients at the pharmacy receive, if anything it would be providing better care, as there would be a new shift starting every 8 hours and having someone mentally and physically ready, instead of being fatigued during a 12 hour shift.Reply or Back
