Can I lose my job if I'm out on approved sick leave?

Question Details: I am working in a multinational company for the past 4 years. I have some health issues (i.e. a disc complaint and cyst problem). For my treatment, I asked 45 days leave from the company. HR and the senior GM sanctioned my leave. However, after 1 month I called to HR and they told me that the company appointed a new staff member for my position without giving any indication beforehand of this to me. Does the company have the right to do like? Can I file a suit againt my employer for this?
