FMLA may protect your leave but not your job. Any legitimate reason such as your not doing anything requires for your job can result in a job loss whether or not you are on FMLA.

To keep your job you will be jumping through lots of FMLA hoops. And you best complete the forms timely. I have seen employees legitimately fired the day they came back from FMLA and the firing stuck. Good luck and be careful.
