As far as I know, when you are on disability your are to return to your employer with either the same or similar position. They can give away your position, but you are allowed back onto the job with a similar or same position. For example, you stock shelves in a store in Dept A. making $$ an hour. You go on disability and they put another person in your spot. When you return to work after being on disability your employer is obligated to have you stock shelves as before at $$ per hour, but it may be in a Dept B.

I hope that makes sense. I would fill out the FMLA form because that protects you.
