This is a really interesting story about a failed academic negotiation.  It is pretty clear that nobody has covered themselves in glory here, although the response from the institution seems awfully harsh and a symptom of the sort of extremely tight labor markets that reduce employee choice.  One only hopes that the maternity leave condition was orthogonal to the decision to rescind the offer, although I suspect asking for a one year delay in start date was more likely as the culprit. 

The comments below are quite interesting as well.
