Why is my list of employees not populating?

$(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>';
        }); // end $.each
        statusHTML += '</ul>'
        $('#employeeList').html(statusHTML);
     }); //end getJSON
}); // end ready

You have broken html.

statusHTML += 'li class = "out">' // <-- missing '<'
