The Vegan Society has published guidelines for employers to support vegans in the workplace, detailing what they can do to look after their vegan staff.
Some suggestions include offering vegan menus at events to providing vegan-friendly workwear for people who want it. The group states that vegans should be exempt from corporate events like horse racing or activities that may include cooking a "hog roast" on a barbecue.
The guidelines also recommend having colour-coded kitchen equipment and separate areas to prepare meat-free food, as well as providing non-leather phone cases. Vegans should also be exempt from any part of purchasing non-vegan goods and have the chance to discuss vegan-friendly pension options.
