The business I work for did not pay unemployment taxes in the state of Florida for an employee who worked out of his home there from 2006 until the present. Instead, we paid the taxes in Louisiana, where our physical business is located. We recently laid him off. He applied for unemployment benefits in Florida, but he was told that he did not qualify because we had not paid our unemployment taxes there. Wouldn't Florida go after our business instead of denying him his benefits that he is entitled to as a resident of Florida? This happened to us before in the state of Illinois, and they gave the employee benefits but sent us notices that we needed to register and pay and threatened to assess a lien against us. Of course, I have NO IDEA why my business would be so stupid as to not pay unemployment insurance taxes and then lay someone off.
