Dykhoff v. Xcel EnergyAnnotate this Case
Relator was injured while attending a required training session at the general office of her employer. A workers’ compensation judge denied Relator’s claim for benefits, finding that Relator’s injury did not arise out of and in the course of her employment. The Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals (WCCA) reversed, concluding that Relator’s injury arose out of the course of her employment, and therefore, her injury was compensable. The Supreme Court reversed and reinstated the decision of the compensation judge, holding that Relator did not meet her burden to prove her injury arose out of her employment, as required by statute.
