Employment Law: Workers’ Compensation-Work-Related Injury

Claimant appealed the denial of her workers’ compensation claim, after the commission determined that claimant’s injury did not arise out of and in the course of her employment because her work duties did not cause her fall, which occurred before claimant clocked in.

Where there was sufficient evidence to find that claimant’s fall was caused by a work-related risk source and that the fall occurred on employer’s premises as claimant was heading in to clock into work, the commission erred in finding that claimant’s injury was not work-related.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
