Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 18, 2017

Pharmacists do not get breaks or lunches and are often expected to work in excess of 12 hours per day. We also have to work short-handed to accommodate the breaks of our staff. This puts patient safety at risk, especially due to the increased workload placed upon us. It is also putting our health at risk, especially long-term. It is about time someone looked at Employment Standards for our profession. Patients expect to wait hours in doctors offices and hospitals. There is no reason why they can't wait 15- 30 minutes at a pharmacy for the pharmacist to have a needed break.
