Taking benefits and dropping my position after returning from FMlA

I have been on sick leave through my company many times during my 8 yrs with them. I recently hurt my ankle and was once again placed on sick leave and the fmla to run concurrent. My question is that a mgr. told me I would be reclassified to part time with no benefits when I get back for not this quarter that I'm on sick leave but the quarter before this for not ave. full-time hours. Can they use this loop hole to take my fulltime status thus all my benefits too?

FMLA

The employer can take any action that it would have taken if there was no FMLA. So if they would have reclassified you if you did not take FMLA, then they can do it.
