    Re: A lot of employees without notice

    My previous company asked a lot of employees to leave the company without giving them any kind of written notice. So I left that company before it could happen to me.

    Your company must have been happier that you pre-empted their action on you. What they did was obviously against labour laws.

    Re: A lot of employees without notice

    You can say "They asked a lot of employees to leave without any notice". You don't have to say "without giving them" and you don't need "kind of". When you say "They asked employees to leave", do you mean "They fired them"?

    Whether that breaks employment laws would depend, in the UK, on the type of contract the employees were on and how long they had worked there.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: A lot of employees without notice

    In the US, most states operate under the concept of "employment at will". Employees can be dismissed without cause or notice. However, other factors such as contracts or promises can affect that.

    They fired/sacked many employees with no notice.
