Returning to work

You’re entitled to return to the same job after maternity leave if you’ve been away 26 weeks or less. Your pay and conditions must be the same as or better than if you hadn’t gone on maternity leave. 

It’s unfair dismissal and maternity discrimination if your employer says you can’t return to the same job.
