Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards ActPharmacist · Nov. 19, 2017
throughout my 15 years of working as a full time pharmacist , exemption of employment standards has negatively affected me both mentally and physically.
We keep reminding the public to take care of themselves ...We are PEOPLE too. how about a decent break so we can eat something without swallowing whole, having a washroom break and just a couple of minute to get some fresh air .
I believe having a break ( 30 minutes) will protect the public as well since pharmacists will be less prone to making errors.
We are living in a civilized world yet the way we are treated as pharmacist at times seems so uncivilized and unethical.
Added to not being respected , we are constantly given more responsibilities such as providing flu shots,etc without any compensation or wage increase? How is this just? Eating (with chewing) and going to washroom and getting some fresh air are BASIC human needs.
