Q: What do employers need to know about unemployment insurance for out-of-state telecommuters?

A: As with income taxes, unemployment claims are generally filed in the state in which the employee physically performed the work, even if it was performed for the benefit of a company in another state. Therefore, employers must be diligent in remitting unemployment insurance payments for telecommuting workers to the state in which the employee is doing the work.
