the optional insurance for domestic workers

What can I do if my employer had cancelled my visa while I was on holiday out of Bahrain? Is this legal?

In accordance with Article (26, Paragraph B, Clause 7) of Law No. (19) of 2006 regulating the labour market, LMRA must at the request of the employer, cancel the worker’s permit.

However, this cancellation does not preclude the worker’s right to claim his legally prescribed rights for the termination of the work contract if it takes place during any of the worker’s leaves, in accordance with Article (102) of Law No. (36) of 2012 regarding work in the private sector.
