Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 17, 2017

Pharmacists should be included in the Employment Standards Act- we're human beings and not robots and as such, we should be entitled to regular breaks (for a meal or washroom) as well as, overtime pay. This will enable pharmacists to complete their tasks both accurately and effectively thereby, ensuring patient safety. With expanded scope, we're expected to do more as a community pharmacist whether it be injections, medchecks, smoking cessation etc in addition to, filling and counselling patients on their OTCs or prescription medications. How can these services be safely rendered to patients without adequate rest and nutrition?
