European Law

For example, in the UK, Equality law applies to veganism and outlaws:

  • Victimisation because you are vegan.

  • Harassment because you are vegan.
  • Unfair treatment as a result of being vegan.
  • Treatment that puts you at a disadvantage due to being vegan.

You are also protected from any unwanted conduct that:

  • Violates your dignity.
  • Causes you to feel humiliated (subjective feelings).
  • Creates a degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.
