Employment — workers compensation

The County of Outagamie appeals a circuit court order that affirmed a Labor and Industry Review Commission decision to grant worker’s compensation coverage for injuries Michael Dengel sustained when he slipped on ice on his driveway. The County argues Dengel was not performing service growing out of and incidental to his employment within the meaning of Wis. Stat. § 102.03(1)(c)1. at the time he was injured. Because we conclude the Commission’s determination that Dengel was injured while completing a “special errand” is reasonable and not contrary to our case law, we affirm the circuit court’s order and the Commission’s decision. This opinion will not be published.
