    I would think its a bit rough if you had to pay it back cause thy finished you up early. I mean if you had every intention to fulfil the 12 months and they finished you up if be surprised if they could enforce the return of the maternity leave.

    I would think the Industrial Relations Commission would support a claim if your employer alters your contract. When you sign your Maternity leave plan it should be as at your current working status i.e. you're existing contract is to finish end 2015, you wish to take the paid leave and intend to return to work with 12months still on your contract. You would be adhering to all their current rules and can not be held responsible to pay back monies for their decision to change a contract. As others have mentioned org's can include clauses for return to work agreements where they pay you maternity leave, some are stricter then others, usually smaller businesses have tighter controls. I can't see your employer attempting to recover funds from you if they choose to reduce your contract terms, it opens them up to too many legal complications. But be certain to confirm with the IRC before you sign anything, and congrats for having Paid mat leave.
