    He gives training for the new staff. (Can we say give training?).

    1) He gives training for the new staff. (Can we say give training?).
    2) The employee and one of his employee failed to have a proper talk about schedule plan. Both parties are confused and that's the reason why the employee did not show up at work when he was supposed to.

    Are the above sentences correct?

    1. You can say "give training" but it's followed by "to", not "for". It's better worded as "He trains the new staff" though.

    2. I assume you meant "the employer" at the beginning. I would write it as:
    "The employer and one of his employees failed to properly discuss the employee's work schedule. Both parties were confused and that is why the employee failed to arrive for work when he should have."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
