If it looks like a layoff, smells like a layoff...

Coming off of a leave of absence and being told my job no longer exists -- is it still a layoff if I don't take the new job they are offering that is a step down?

Finishing up my maternity leave, and being told there is some restructuring afoot. The job I had previously no longer exists, and instead it has been replaced with a new job description that is quite a bit more junior. I'm being offered this job, or the ability to take severance. Since it is being offered to me as a choice that I make, does this mean I am essentially resigning instead of being laid off if I do not take them up on the offer of the position?
