Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Basic needs like nutrition breaks and reasonable shift length should be a standard regardless of the profession. Expecting your health care professional to work more than 8 hours, or go without breaks is ridiculous, and our profession has not only allowed it but made it seem like the expectation. I personally will not work more than 10 hour shifts and always take a 30 minute break. I don't think that the general public would mind waiting if it meant that your health care professional was able to practice at the peak of their performance because they were hydrated and nourished.
