Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

It is about time the exemptions to the ESA are lifted. Pharmacy practice has changed over the years and now the majority of pharmacists are employees. We have fewer pharmacist owners who could make there own accommodations for breaks. As it stands, pharmacist employees cannot demand reasonable break times and equitable remuneration for work on public holidays. I have always been fairly treated by my employers but everyone needs to be likewise so. Having adequate breaks leads to healthier pharmacists less likely to make a mistakes due to fatigue.
