Firm bans staff from claiming back anything with meat

A firm has hit headlines for introducing an expenses policy that only allows employees to claim back work-related costs providing that they don’t contain meat.

According to the BBC, staff working for the property development firm, Igloo Regeneration will only qualify to be compensated for the work expenses they have incurred if the purchase is vegetarian. It was reported that internal staff voted on the idea for the policy and it passed, with just a few employees objecting to it.
