Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long is the person going off on ML for?
Hi she is looking to take 26 weeks off
If the employee takes Ordinary ML (up to 26 weeks) then she is guaranteed to return to the job she did before going off. It is only if she took Additional ML (6-12 months) that her job is not guaranteed on her return. The employer is free to get a replacement for the time she is off but once she returns, assuming she has only taken 26 weeks, then she would be entitled to return to her old job
Thank you. Is it in order for the employer to advertise her current position as a permanent position.
legally they can do, as long as she is allowed to return to her old job. They may simply decide to remove the employee that was placed in that position when the time comes for her to come back to work
Thank you ben for your help. Regards Chris
