    The only ones who can accurately answer your questions are your employers. Every facility's leave policies are different.

    The job where you've been there for two years: you should be eligible for FMLA - get those forms from HR.

    The new job: uh - good luck.

    In the US, there is no paternity leave policy for the most part.
