I am using a case statement.  I assign the values to column defined in the case statement.  I want to filter on the values in that column.    I cannot seem to get the correct syntax to do this with the WHERE statement.  Or maybe I am just way off on how I approaching this problem.

You just have to wrap another SELECT around it:

      CONVERT(varchar, GetDate(), 101) As 'Current Date',
      DATEDIFF(m,DateHire, GetDate()) AS 'Number of Months',
      Class,
      Suspend,
      DateLeft,
 
 'Descrepancy' =
CASE
      WHEN  DATEDIFF(m,DateHire, GetDate())BETWEEN 10 AND 12 AND AccrualCapHours < 120 AND AccrualRules.RuleId = 1 THEN 0      -- Hourly & Admin

THANK YOU!!!  That worked perfectly - just so I understand - why did I need the extra SELECT statement?

I used your first statement as a "virtual table" so to speak.  So, that query runs and returns results that are used by the outer query.  In the outer query, since the value from the case statement has already been returned, I can set criteria on it and filter it as needed.  I could have done it in the original SELECT statement, but I would have had to recreate the entire case statement again in the where clause to do so...so this is more eloquent..and should be faster too.
