Explanation:
This refers to a period that moves ("rolls") rather than being fixed. It could be, for example, the year before the present date.

UN PERIODO DE 12 MESES CALCULADOS A PARTIR DEL ÚLTIMO PERMISO


Explanation:
The 'rolling' here refers to a way of calculating special leave (Family and Medical Leave, for births etc) - 12 weeks in any 12 month period. This period is not a calendar year, but measured from the time of the last leave.

Example: X takes 4 weeks in April 2000, so that uses up 4 weeks of his/her entitlement for the year April 2000-March 2001, leaving him/her 8 weeks. He/She takes another 4 weeks in Feb 2001, but that is calculated in terms of ANOTHER year defined as Feb 2001- Jan 2002. So that's how it 'rolls'

This Is NOT TRANSPARENT in English, so it's difficult to translate, perhpa

UN PERIODO DE 12 MESES CALCULADOS A PARTIR DEL ÚLTIMO PERMISO

EXTRACT USED TO UNDERSTAND THE TERM
General. In general, an employee will be entitled to a maximum of 12 weeks of Family and Medical Leave during any 12-month period. ***The 12-month period is a rolling period measured backward from the date the employee uses any leave under this policy***. Each time an employee takes any Family and Medical Leave, the remaining leave entitlement will be any balance of the 12 weeks that has not been used during the immediately preceding 12 months.
