2007-CA-001575
PUBLISHED: AFFIRMING
PANEL:  THOMPSON PRESIDING; NICKELL, VANMETER CONCUR
COUNTY: WCB
DATE RENDERED: 2/22/2008

The Court affirmed an award of disability benefits to a teacher who fell while attending a beta-club convention with her students out of town. The Court held that the activity benefited the employer, and therefore arose out of employment even though it occurred away from the employer’s premises.
