Can you be re-hired by a company that has paid you a severance package?

My husband received a severance package from a company that closed the plant that he worked at for 32 years. Now, a year later, they called and asked if he would be willing to come back to work for them at a different plant.
They say that legally they "think" that he has to come in as a new employee and that they can't give him back his seniority and benefits. Is this true?
