Make sure the version is 7.0, just like this: <form string="Employee" version="7.0"> <sheet> <field name="image_medium" widget="image" class="oe_left oe_avatar"/>

It will not generate any error because tag class allows you to set the position and other data on the image field. For example if you set oe_right it's going to appear on the right side. It depends on containers and other data to work.

Everything is set by the css files, it's not going to affect the funcionality it's just helping you to have a nice form view.
