Can I return to the same job from adoption leave?

After returning from Ordinary Adoption Leave (the first six months of leave), you have the right to go back to the same job you were doing before you went on leave. After returning from Additional Adoption Leave (the second six months of leave), you have the right to return to the same job unless your employer can demonstrate that it is not reasonably practicable to have kept that job open for you. In this case you are still entitled to an alternative job that is both suitable and appropriate for you.
