268.131 COMBINED WAGE ARRANGEMENTS FOR WORK IN MULTIPLE STATES.

(a) In accordance with the requirements of the Federal Unemployment Tax Act, the commissioner must participate with other states for the payment of unemployment benefits on the basis of combining an applicant's wages from multiple states for the purposes of collecting unemployment benefits from a single state. The commissioner may only pay unemployment benefits from the trust fund under this section if:

(1) there are reimbursements to the trust fund, by the other state, for unemployment benefits paid from the trust fund based upon wages and employment covered under the laws of the other state; and

(2) the applicant is combining Minnesota wage credits with the wages paid in covered employment from another state.

(b) Under this section, the wages paid an applicant from employment covered under an unemployment insurance program of another state are considered wages from covered employment for the purpose of determining the applicant's rights to unemployment benefits under the Minnesota Unemployment Insurance Law.
