My solution - DOM manupulation with Template String Literals

 const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

xhr.onreadystatechange = function () {
  if (xhr.readyState === 4) {
    let employees = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText);
    const ul = document.createElement("ul");
    ul.className = "bulleted";
    for (let i = 0; i < employees.length; i++) {

       const isInOffice = employees[i].inOffice === true ? "in" : "out";

        ul.insertAdjacentHTML(
            "beforeend",
            `<li class=${isInOffice}>${employees[i].name}</li>`
          );
    }
    document.querySelector("#employeeList").appendChild(ul);

  }
}

xhr.open("GET", "data/employees.json");
xhr.send();
  }
