You should be paid the correct salary for the job you are doing. Last year has nothing to do with the effort and value of your work this year.

A payrise is not a 'reward' for rocking up to work.
It is a remuneration for skills and expertise you bring to the job.
Something is rotten.

I work for a massive company. I took a year off. When I started back everybody got their annual review and little pay rise. I got nothing as I had just rejoined the job. I kinda hoped I would get it but also understand why I didn't. I think it must be ok to do as my company is all over this kinda stuff.

There is something very wrong with the system if this is not discrimination. Clearly, women will always be out of the workforce more often due to maternity leave and then will always be copping this sort of crap!
Just because you have taken leave does not mean you are any less qualified or experienced in your role.

Females are already disadvantaged when it comes to negotiating pay increases. There has been significant research to show that men are judged on potential and any past mistakes or poor performance are excused/explained, yet women are subject to "prove it again" syndrome - good performance has to be repeated and proven constantly to be believed. Throw in ridiculous things like salary penalties for taking maternity leave and no wonder women are paid so much less than men.

I might be way off as i def do not work in HR..
I've taken mat leave a bunch of times from my govt job. Prior to having kids, every yr, on the anniversary of my start date, i got an incremental pay increase as per the award.
After taking mat leave and returning part time it now takes twice as long to get the incremental pay increase, simply because it takes me a lot longer to reach x hours of work required to be eligible for the increase than it does for someone who works full time.
I see it as they are giving you half the rise rather than making you wait twice as long for the full rise?
I dont think its discrimination as i would assume it would happen to anyone who went from ft to pt work regardless of their reason.
A meeting with your manager should clear it up anyway.
