In addition to the rights you have under the FLSA to be placed in the same or similar position, you may also have rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act to require the employer to provide you with any reasonable accommodation necessary to enable you to perform the essential functions of your job.

FMLA requires that an employer return you once you are cleared, but not necessarily to the exact position you held. Something similar complies with the law. You may want to consult in greater detail with counsel on how to best address the employer.
