The supervisor should not be discussing your personal medical information with anyone. That could be a HIPPA violation.

If the supervisor is just complaining that you are on FMLA, that would not violate HIPPA, but could violate the FMLA if the supervisor is either trying to put pressure on you to come off FMLA or discourage you or others from taking FMLA in the future.
