I have joined as fresher in a company and have been working with the same company for 3 years.
However, I was on maternity leave for the last one year.
I was looking for a job change and now I am having an offer from a reputed company. The problem is, any basic details check will reveal that I have been on leave for that financial year since the company has paid for 3 months that is during the maternity leave period.
But in the resume I showed them that I was working for the 3 years, and didn't mention the leave period.
Will that be a problem if I accept the offer from the new company? Will they come to know during the background verification and will it put my job at risk?
I have been back at work for 7 months after my maternity leave.
