Massachusetts SUI taxable wages

Hello for Massachusetts SUI taxable wages should section 125 Plan and 401K be include or excluded? I'm looking for Documentation. My client is including the cafe 125 plan and 401K in the Sui Taxable wage and I'm trying to confirm if that is correct.

    Massachusetts does not allow pretax deductions for SUI purposes.
    Unfortunately, all sates do not follow Federal rules for unemployment. So gross wages is the base used for Massachusetts.
