NY may tell you to apply in NJ. You're better off. NJ benefits are higher than NY.

The employer paying taxes to the wrong state is not your problem.

File an appeal. You need to get your benefits that you are entitled to when due, and NY can clean up the mess with your employer later.

The states need to receive UI taxes from the employer to pay benefits. From what you were told by NY, it appears getting these taxes transferred is a common occurrence in your area (NY/NJ/PA/CT), especially since so many people cross states lines to work and companies have offices in more than one state.

We had a report from someone who worked for a NY company in the state of NC, but that company has never paid taxes to NC, so NC won't pay benefits - and won't communicate w/NY, either. Last resort for those people is to apply in the state where the company is domiciled. Another where a guy worked as a dealer for casinos all over the country - with his contract finally coming to an end. He didn't know where to apply, was turned down in one state. Never did hear what finally happened.
