    OP as others have said I think you should record what was said and I also think speaking to the HR department is a good idea. If you cover all your bases now you won't have to worry about it later. Good luck and congratulations on the pregnancy

    Op vent away!
    I too am having a quiet panic about my job (I'm 26 weeks along). My colleague had her first child in feb and a month ago when she requested to end her maternity leave she was told her position no longer exists and was offered 4 hours a week, on Saturdays only. I suspect I'll find myself in the same position. It sucks.job security in this country has deteriorated and maternity leave rights are full of loopholes.

    Goid luck and hope your pregnancy progresses smoothly

    I would call Fair Work and find out exactly, you can lodge a complaint about the company too that can just sit there. When you have the facts 100% correct I would present them to your boss.

    what did i miss? did the thread get nasty? lol

    The maternity handbook from industrial relations clearly states the following:

    Your employer MUST grant you the leave and provide you with the SAME job upon return.
    IT then goes on to say that if your job is not available they must give you a job nearest in status and salary.

    If you are on mat leave and request a further 12 months then they have the right to refuse you or hire someone in your position

    Does that count if you haven't been back for a certain amount of time between babies?

    Taken from the IR website:

    Your employer mustgrant you the leave and provide you yoursame job when you return. Your employercannot refuse to grant you parental leaveif you qualify and have provided therequired notice of your intent to takeparental leave (see questions 14 & 31).Your employer may however, refuse togrant you an extension of parental leavebased on the reasonable businessgrounds provided at question 19.When you end your parental leave youare entitled to return to the position youheld before you took leave. If your job nolonger exists you are entitled to return toan available position for which you arequalified and nearest in status and salaryto your former position. If there is no jobavailable comparable to your formerposition you may be entitled to
    redundancy pay.

    You are absolutely right on the part that it doesnt matter if its 24 months or whatever, they have to keep your job

    Just contact HR or the union and they will sort it out, they can't bully you just because you're pregnant
