Code appending employeeList to bottom, not sidebar

I've gotten the widget to work, however, it's showing at the bottom of the page not the side. Seems like a css issue but I must have done something to mess with it in my widget.js. Any ideas what went wrong?

$(document).ready(function () {
  var url = "../data/employees.json";
  $.getJSON(url, function (response){
    var statusHTML = '<ul class="bulleted">';
    $.each(response, function (index, employee){
      if (employee.inoffice === true) {
        statusHTML += '<li class="in">';
      } else {
          statusHTML += '<li class="out">';
      statusHTML += employee.name + '</li>';

    statusHTML += '</ul>';
