Terminated while on disability /n NJ

I went out on fmla/Short term Disability on 12/15/08-6/15/09. My employer informed me to contact them when I am ready to return to wrok,as I did call leaving messages with no response. I recently called and was informed that they can--name removed--bring me back to work due to new rules. My termination date was put in as 12/15/08 so i can collect my 401k. I wasn--name removed--sent any letter,as to when I was terminated. The employer also informed me they are on a freeze of hiring,I know of some relatives who were hired and are currently working in my post employment. I applied for unemployment and I want to know will the state of NJ go back to 12/08 to pay benefits? or will the employer have to pay from 12/08 til now? Or do I have grounds for a lawsuit?
