Any employee who returns from an approved leave of absence which lasted for a period of less than one year shall be reemployed by the state department or agency by which he or she was employed at the time leave was granted, with the right to be restored to the same assignment of position or duties held prior to the approved leave of absence. The employee shall retain all seniority, rights and privileges which had accrued at the time of the approved leave of absence and shall have all rights and privileges generally accorded employees at the time of the reemployment.
