Message You may find that during your absence other people have stepped up and it may not be obvious where you will fit back in. As you have been away, your manager may not be showing a huge amount of interest in you and may be reluctant to move others around to restore you to your former position. Do not be afraid to stand your ground and do not accept any position in order to not "rock the boat". I came back from maternity leave within six months and was told that i'd be moving to a new team. I should have stood my ground but instead, feeling grateful and being out of work mode, I accepted less than I should have. If I went through the process again, I would view my maternity as an entitlement and be very clear about my role expectations upon my return.
