How would this baby-bonding time situation be covered?

12/17/2018

Q: “A client (over 50 employees) hired an employee in March 2018. His live-in girlfriend had a baby in July 2018. He has requested intermittent FMLA starting in February 2019. He wants to take every Thursday and Friday off as FMLA to care for his daughter so his girlfriend can go to school. Does this qualify as FMLA? I understand that intermittent FMLA may not be taken for the care of a newborn. Would New York’s Paid Family Leave be applicable?” - Kenneth, New York
