    Company will pay you what it owes you

    The manager of a company to an employee: you don't need to come from tomorrow. Company will pay you what it owes you. You worked for ten days this month so you will get paid for these ten days but you need not to come from tomorrow.

    Please check my sentences.

    Re: Company will pay you what it owes you

    Is the person being sacked?

    Company will pay you what it owes you.
    What's missing here?

    Use "come in", not "come".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, the person is being sacked.

    The manager of a company to an employee: you don't need to come in from tomorrow. The company will pay you what it owes you. You worked for ten days this month so you will get paid for these ten days but you need not to come in from tomorrow.

    See above. I've corrected it from a grammatical point of view. I don't know what the situation is like where you are but this is much more informal than what would happen if someone were being fired in the UK. An employee would either be called in to a formal meeting with a manager, after having received a series of verbal and then written warnings, to be told that despite those warnings his/her behaviour/work has not met the required standards and that termination was the result. Most companies have a "notice period" so the person would be required to work out a final number of days/weeks (unless they had committed some serious offence or violation of their contract in which case they could perhaps be fired with immediate effect).

    Don't we use "to" after "need not"?

    No.

    You need not come in tomorrow.

    Re: Company will pay you what it owes you

    You need not come in = You are not required to come in (but it's OK if you do).

    You need to not come in = You must not come in (or we'll have you removed).
