What Should You Do If One of Our Pharmacy Clients Asks You to Work Additional Hours or Days?

Overtime is a fantastic way to add to your earnings; but it’s important that you communicate with us about it first.

When you are working at our pharmacy client’s location as a Relief Pharmacist or as a Pharmacy Assistant/Technician, there might be some days or hours when the client will request you to work after your contract hours are complete. There are a few things that you should keep in mind after agreeing to working these additional hours.

Contact Us Promptly

The first thing you should do is to let RPI Consulting Group Inc. know about this request as soon as possible. You can call your account manager for example, as it’s the most immediate way to speak with us. If there is no one to answer your call or if you have called us after regular business hours, then we expect you to leave a voicemail message. Give us all of the pertinent details, your name, and your phone number.

If you want to send an email, you can send it to your account manager or to our services department email at services@rpigroup.ca. When you send an email, please state the name of the individual who has requested you to work additional hours.

Document Your Overtime

The second thing that we expect you to do is document the overtime hours on your own, just so that we can verify them with the pharmacy client later on.

Bear in mind, working beyond your contractual hours is completely voluntary. If you have to leave after finishing your designated hours, then you are free to do so. But you need to express this clearly to the Client you are working for.

The last thing to remember is to get the phone number and the name of an individual who is working with you for those overtime hours. These details are requested just in case we need to verify the extra time that you are claiming.
