I want to organize my fixtures just like the namespace of my models. So
for example if I have a model Company::Employee I'd like the fixture to
be in fixtures/company/employees.yml.

However, I can't figure out how to specify the path of the fixture file.
If I do:

fixtures :employees

in my unit test it can't find the fixture file. Any suggestions?

Try this:

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../test_helper'

class Messaging::BulletinTest < Test::Unit::TestCase

  Test::Unit::TestCase.fixture_path= File.dirname(__FILE__)

  fixtures :messaging_bulletins

  set_fixture_class :messaging_bulletins => Messaging::Bulletin

   def test_database
    assert_equal messaging_bulletins(:one).id, 1
