You may have seen the story over the weekend about the man who was sacked and is claiming it was because of his 'philosophical belief' in veganism. 

Whether he wins or not will depend on the tribunal which eventually hears his claim (and possibly the appeal that follows), but it will be test of how far the courts are willing to go to protect non-religious beliefs in an increasingly secular society. 

I joined Robert Perrone on BBC Three Counties Radio to discuss the case and what it might mean for employers, and vegans, in the UK.  Listen in from 1:10:00 (just after Dionne Warwick)!
