Employment Taxes to be Withheld

I am a W-2 consultant who lives in New Jersey but is currently working in New York City. The employment agency originally withheld federal and New York taxes from my paycheck. The employment agency has changed payroll systems and now is deducting Federal taxes NY Withholding, and now NJ Unemployment, SWAF, HCSF and WDPF from my paycheck. Is this correct? I have no idea what SWAF, HCSF and WDPF stand for. I am concerned that if I have to file for unemployment or disability, I will be caught in a Catch-22 situation. The emplyment agency has not been able to give me an answer for now.

Can anyone give me some guidance? Thank you.
