Legally, they are liable for whatever losses (e.g. lost wages) you suffered during the time you were improperly terminated in violation of the ADA and FMLA. Practically, given that lawsuits can be costly, time consumming and distracting, if you only lost a comparatively small number of dyas of pay, it is likely not worth going to the trouble and expense of suing. You may wish to consult with a local employment law attorney, to see if this case would be worth bringing.
