Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

1) The "hours of work" exemption should be removed and a daily and weekly limits on hours implemented. A review of scientific evidence, in conjunction with a consultation of the public and members of the College ought to determine the maximums. 2) The "daily rest periods" exemption should be removed and a daily rest period rule implemented. Scientific evidence has demonstrated the cognitive benefits that rest periods have on concentration and job performance accuracy. 3) The "eating period" exemption should be removed and an entitlement to an eating period implemented. An uninterrupted lunch break... it's a no-brainer.
