It would seem prudent to check with the unemployment office in regard to the agreement you have… Read More

I am guessing here but I would say the current company. If you worked at all for the second company I would say they are responsible, but if you didn't I would say the first company. Just file for the unemployment and let the department figure it out.

No. You understood under the terms of the Temporary Agency that assignments are temporary, therefore the Agency is not liable for benefits.
This could depend on the relationship, position held in the company, state you work in (each has their own criteria), reasons for the unemployment, etc. It's best to contact your local employment security office for clarification.
Where do you pay unemployment insurance if employees work off site and from home in the state they live or where the company is based?
As the employer, who is responsible for paying the payroll tax from which the state collects funds for unemployment benefits, you'd pay in the state where your company is based. Employees pay no unemployment insurance, but can file in the state where they live and that state will act as the "agent" state, in their behalf, and assist them collecting from the "liable" state.
