Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 19, 2017

I strongly believe that pharmacists should be covered under the act with all the rights, including lunch break, rest breaks, overtime pay. The current situation, where pharmacists are required to work long hours without breaks is a danger to the public as pharmacists need to make very important decisions on an ongoing basis and the impact of errors due to fatigue can be very severe for the patient. In many situations pharmacists are required to work weekends and statutory holidays without the necessary days off for a healthy work-life balance; I think that pharmacists should be given two consecutive days off to compensate for the weekend days worked. Thank you.
