You are protected from termination for requesting or taking such leave. If there are reasons for terminating you unrelated to the codified leave, you have no protection under the FMLA.
Of course, if the employer uses something as a pretext to terminate you for taking FMLA then you could file a complaint with the EEOC, alleging the pretext, and the employer would be required to show the termination was not due to FMLA.
