Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 19, 2017

The problem that I have with the opt out agreement is that it can become a tool for employers to identify pharmacists who are willing to sacrifice their own health for short term gains and be willing to sign such opt out agreements to gain a competitive edge versus more health conscious or real health professionals who would not sign such opt out agreements. Basically, you have a set of pharmacists who are not health conscious and are rewarded for it because when asked during the job interview if they will sign the agreement, they said yes. They get the job while every health conscious pharmacist who answers no is declined for the job. In the end, word gets around and all pharmacists who need a job 'understand' (because they're smart after all) that they have to say yes to the opt out agreement to get the job.
