… well now Jordi Casamitjana can believe officially. He has just won part of his Employment Tribunal case (Casamitjana v League Against Cruel Sports) which confirms that ethical veganism is a protected philosophical belief in terms of Sections 4 and 10 of the Equality Act 2010.
Please note, however, that the Employment Tribunal is yet to determine whether Mr Casamitjana was dismissed because of these protected beliefs – that is another matter.
The full Employment Tribunal judgement doesn’t appear to be available yet, but I hope to post a link to this very soon.
In the meantime, please find a link below to the BBC News App which is covering the decision:
Ethical veganism is a “philosophical belief” and therefore protected by law, employment tribunal rules.
