Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Employers may use a "rolling" 12 month period that begins when the employee first took FMLA leave. Here is an information pamphlet for you to print out that explains the rule in more detail.

If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
