(US) EEOC protection applies to ethical or moral beliefs
Updated: Jan 17, 2021
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) protects US workers against different types of discrimination (such as age, disability, and religion). The religious discrimination protections include, not only traditional religions, but also ethical and moral beliefs. Since ethical veganism is considered to be an ethical and moral belief, employees who are ethical vegans would qualify for religious discrimination protection under the EEOC.
