Returning from leave without pay

Q. Are there governmentwide rules/regulations that provide clarity regarding the return rights civilian (nonmilitary) federal employees have when returning to their agencies after extended, approved leave without pay, or are agencies responsible for developing and administering their own policies in this area?

A. As far as I know, the only requirement is that you be returned to a position for which you are qualified at the same grade and pay and in the same geographic area you were located when in you went on LWOP.
