Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

I do not see any health care professionals that are not offered any break time. As a pharmacist working at least 11 hours each shift, it is extremely tiring not getting a lunch, tea or washroom break. In England, the pharmacy is closed for an hour to give the pharmacist a lunch break. Accordingly, over work and mental fatigue contribute a high percentage of dispersing error and affecting overall performance. Also when we work over 44 hours per week, we should be entitled to be compensated over time rate. Closing the pharmacy to allow the pharmacist to take their lunch will not affect the opening of the drug store as most of the products in the pharmacy are self service except behind the counter products and prescriptions pick up at that time.
