If it is shift work then unfortunately their business grounds may well be reasonable, but it can't hurt to put in an application anyway. At least then they really have to put some thought into it, and their reasons for refusing your request if they do so.

- submit a request to their employer to extend their parental leave for a further 12 months after the conclusion of their original period of 12 months parental leave. Employer must consider and if refused, must provide genuine business reasons why.
- Request a Flexible Working Arrangement. Anyone who is the primary carer for children under school age can do this - it isnt just restricted to returning from maternity leave. Again, the employer must consider it and provide genuine business reasons if they deny the request.
Check out the Fair Work Australia website - lots of handy info on there

Can you request a copy of your award with the specifics for maternity leave. I work for state government so my maternity leave entitlements will be completely different to someone who is not employed by state government.
Better to go off your own award rather than get your hopes up over the wrong one.
