Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 19, 2017

All exemptions can be lifted without compromising patient care, except that lunch breaks should remain flexible and negotiable. Pharmacists must remain on the premises regardless (and therefore should be paid). In the case of rural or one pharmacist pharmacies, patient care should come first at all times and availability of the pharmacist is important. Leave the lunch break decision as a choice for an individual pharmacist to make in the interests of their patients and their workflow. This exemption was put in place for a reason (we are needed professionals) and the original reasons have not changed.
