Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 18, 2017

Pharmacists should be covered under all aspects of the ESA. It will improve working conditions, ensure workplace fairness, AND improve patient safety. Long hours without breaks is a risk to patient safety.

There are ways to overcome any challenges of lunch breaks. Let's get creative: use lock & leave or have the pharmacist take a 30 min paid lunch break on the premises.

Most of the ESA exemptions (vacation pay etc.) are already offered by most employers. Overtime and lunch breaks are long overdue.
