English term or phrase:rolling year
Use of a Rolling Year in Determining 12 Week Leave Period
XXX will use a rolling year in determining whether an employee has used his/her 12 week FMLA leave. This means that XXX will look back twelve months from the date the employee has requested as the commencement date of his/her FMLA leave in determining the number of weeks, if any, available to the employee under the FMLA. For example, Jill requests a three week FMLA leave commencing November 1, 2000 to care for her seriously ill parent. Her attendance records show that she took 6 weeks of FMLA leave commencing on December 1, 1999, 4 weeks of FMLA leave commencing on February 1, 2000 and 2 weeks of FMLA leave commencing on June 1, 2000. Jill must wait to commence her FMLA leave until December 1, 2000, at which time she could take the requested three week leave, assuming she had complied with the requirements stated herein.
