I get asked regularly by my clients, is it ok if I employ just ‘VEGANS’? Can I put that on the job advert?
Providing the business is a vegan business and it is a genuine occupational requirement for the individual to live a vegan lifestyle, then it is permissible.
However, ideally, you would have by that point reviewed what the occupational requirements are in case you are challenged by someone that eats a plant based, meat or vegetarian diet. There is a significant difference between an ethical vegan and a plant based diet, so it’s best to not get confused by the two.
