What Happens to My Job While I am on Pregnancy Leave?
Upon returning to work, new mothers are entitled to their previous position without termination, demotion or reduction of salary. Your employer cannot eliminate your position or terminate your role because you took pregnancy leave. If the position is no longer available due to shifts in the company, the employer must offer the employee returning from leave a position similar in salary, benefits, and status.
