Alsalaam, my name is Ali from Indonesia, recently I was working at one company and got terminated on 15 of April 2020 (officially on paper).
I have passed my 3 months probation and before the fourth month finished I got terminated. The reasons was because I got sicked for three days but I could not provide the sick leave certificate from doctor due to financial situation (I already explain this issue) and willing to be unpaid leave during my sickness period.
from the day 1 and day 3 I always informed my owner thru WA about my condition. On 20 of April they made me to have have Covid test, the test was on 22 of April and the result was out on 23 April (negative). The same day on 23 April 2020 they issued my termination letter.
I work with them without contract agreement, only offering letter.
The problem is, on my final settlement letter from company they give me one month notice period from 15 April - 15 May 2020. They deduct my salary from within period of 15 - 21 April 2020 and 27 April - 25 May 2020 total 25 days unpaid leave.
1. Is it normal and legal to give one month notice period after effectively terminated form the company?
2. Is it legal to deduct the salary (wages) after the period of termination date?
3. Currently the company asking for my passport for them to kept to ensure that I will leave Bahrain.
4. Do I have a strong case if I report this issue to LMRA?
Thank you so much for yiur help
