Work trials may only be unpaid if they are part of a genuine recruitment exercise. An unpaid trial work period lasting a few hours may be reasonable and legal, but an unpaid work trial lasting more than one day is probably excessive and therefore illegal in all but exceptional circumstances.

Inclusion and respect for minorities forms an integral part of provincial and national education programmes. Our work to promote tolerance and interfaith harmony includes: training nearly 100,000 teachers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Punjab in equity and inclusion; funding the Alif Ailaan education campaign which focusses on religious minorities; and engaging with education civil society organisations to champion issues of inclusion and raise these with government. Through the KP Education Support Programme (KESP) and the Punjab Education Support Programme II (PESP II), DFID has also provided technical assistance to provincial governments to revise the school curriculum and remove discriminatory content from textbooks. Since 2011, DFID has invested £678.7m in education in Pakistan, including £122.7m in 2017/18.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Protection from Harassment Act 1997 allows the court, upon conviction or acquittal, to make a restraining order for the purpose of protecting the victim from conduct that amounts to harassment or that will cause fear of violence.</p><p>The primary consideration of the court is that restraining orders remain necessary for the purpose of protecting the victim. When an application to vary a restraining order is made, the judiciary must consider the impact on the victim. Any application to vary must be shared with the victim to allow them to give their views before an order can be varied. All decisions on a variation are always communicated to the CPS, the police and the victim so that consideration can be made as to any additional protection that may be required. Departmental procedures require the police to receive notice within 30 minutes of an order being varied, so that they can take immediate steps if that is necessary.</p> more like this
