Hello, I wanted to find out about my rights of returning to work from maternity leave. I was preschool deputy manager for 2 years and then have been manager for an year and then went on maternity leave. Now ive been told i will come back as a basic staff and my pay will decrease as well. I wanted to find out can my owner do this with me? What are my legal rights in uk? Where can i get advice from?
If you take 6 months off you have the right to return to your old position. If you take aml, up to a year then you have the right to return to a position on the same terms as you left on. Does not have to be the same role, but , ust be same terms ans conditions including pay.
