Jains have a developed sravakacara literature, which contains rules for lay life, regarding ahimsa they say:
Himsa may be arambhaja - occupational, or anarambhaja - unrelated to one’s occupation, which is also known as samkalpaja - intentional. The former is allowed, the later isn't. Hunting, offering animals in sacrifice to please the gods, killing for food, for sport etc. are some of the instances of non-occupational, intentional himsa. Occupation himsa is of three types: (1) udyami, (2) grharambhi and (3) virodhi.
(1) Udyami himsa: Harm committed in a normal course of doing business. Occupations which are permissible to a Jain are: asi (sword), masi (ink), krsi (agriculture), vanijya (trade), silpa (crafts), and vidya (knowledge).
(2) Grharambhi himsa: Harm involved in the course of one’s carrying out the domestic duties. Preparation of food, use of water in bathing and washing clothes, keeping of cattle, cleaning the house, maintenance of gardens, cutting fruits and flowers, digging of wells, construction of buildings etc.
(3) Virodhi-himsa: Harm involved in defense and in the protection of persons or property.
They also give five 'transgressions' (aticaras), ways in which harm can be done: (1) restraining (bandha), (2) beating (vadha), (3) cutting or mutilating (chavi-cchedda), (4) overloading (ati-bhararopana), (5) depriving of food and drink (bhakta-pana-vyavaccheda).
Himsa it is said can committed in speech, in body, or in mind, the offender may himself be guilty of the act (krta), may cause it to be done (karita), or may approve of its being done (anumata), there are also three possible stages in the commission of the offence: preparation (samrambha), initiation (samarambha), and doing (arambha).
And additional rules related to avoiding inflicting harm are to avoid water which wasn't strained, meat, and honey, alcohol, and eating at night (at dark).
Pretty detailed stuff. And also, all lay people are expected to do various ascetical and charitable stuff to counter-act the bad karma which is necessarily involved in living a lay life, and are then expected to transition towards being a monk as they grow older, passing though 11 stages, and the 11th stage becoming a full renunciate, an interesting system.
