Can the employer hold the passports of the Foreign employee working for him? I have checked the Immigration Act and also the Passport Act 1966. I could not find the answer.

Kindly advise

Act Immigration 1959/63
Passport Act 1966

Can the employer hold the passports of the Foreign employee 
It is not explicitly  indicated in the above Acts.
But it exists in Bylaws and Policies not meant for public.

May I enquire what was actually the issue you are facing and is asking?

And what category of Foreigner Workers you are referring to?

PROFESSIONAL PASS DP10 & DP11
Professional Work Permit is an Employment Pass for 2 years (DP10 Visa). Professional Work Permit means that an expatriate from another country is Highly Skilled and is Offered a Skilled Job in Malaysia. ... In simple words it is an 'Employment Pass' issued by the Government for skilled workers
This visa is intended for those who have attained national or international acclaim, recognition, or distinction and who are coming temporarily to the US to continue working in the area of extraordinary ability.
What is a Professional Work Permit Visa?
 
Professional Work Permit is an Employment Pass for 2 years (DP10 Visa). Professional Work Permit means that an expatriate from another country is Highly Skilled and is Offered a Skilled Job in Malaysia. The skilled categories are the same as in Western Countries - IT Professionals, Teachers, Doctors, Nursing and Managers. In simple words it is an 'Employment Pass' issued by the Government for skilled workers. The initial validity of the pass is 2 years but it can be extended for 12 years.
A Company (Sdn. Bhd. i.e. Private Limited) needs to have a High Paid Up capital greater than RM 500,000/- to qualify for recruiting Foreign Skilled Workers. They need to satisfy the Immigration that they have Skilled Category Job Vacancies and therefore need skilled workers from Other Countries. The reason for employing Foreign Skilled Workers is that they could not find a Local Malaysian citizens with the required skills and professional background suitable for their job. This is where Professional Work Permit gets its importance and expatriates are selected based on their Background and Qualifications. They are offered an Offer Letter by the Recruiting Company to work for them. Upon signing the Offer Letter, they are given a Contract of Employment for two years.
This Employment Pass has a High Value in the International Arena. Those individuals seeking to apply for Canadian, Australian, UK and USA Immigration/work permits have a higher probability of success once they qualify for the Malaysian Professional Work Permit. Malaysian Companies are recognised all over the World. This means that their Work Experience is recognised internationally. For example Australia issues a 3 months visa for a Working Individual in Malaysia to explore and find a job there. Many Malaysian Companies have branches in Western and Far East Countries, therefore an employee can request for a transfer to another branch in USA, UK, Canada or Australia. This widens the horizons for an individual who in the long run is planning to settle in the West and working in Malaysia for the short run. 
What is an Expatriate Visa?
It is the same as a Professional Visa, used Inter-changeably. An Expatriate has a better potential of securing a better job career as compared to a General Worker.
What is i-Kad (Emplyment Pass ID Card)?
Upon Confirmation of your Professional Visa, the Immigration issues an i-kad (card) used as your Expatriate Identity Card for travelling within Malaysia.
How can I Qualify for a Professional Work Permit? 

There are several agencies in Malaysia that are providing Consultancy to Skilled Foreigners for applying for Professional Work Permits. The Candidate applying for a professional work permit is required to have Educational background and Working Experience in Skilled categories i.e. IT Professionals, Teachers, Doctors, Nursing and Managers. Sometimes due to less educational or professional experiences, it becomes difficult for candidates to qualify for a Professional Work Permit. This is where such Recruiting Agencies play a positive role in providing paper-work Consultancy.  
 
Besides being a tourist attraction in the far East, Malaysia is a growing economy that offers expatriates from various countries to live and work here. General Workers (laborers) to Highly Skilled professionals can find suitable jobs and earn a better living. Expatriates from both Western and Eastern Countries enjoy a good standard of living followed by opportunities to work in the Far East countries like Singapore, even ahead till Netherlands and Australia. Malaysian Government allows their Local Enterprises (SdnBhd i.e. Private Limited) to seek Skilled Employees from other countries so as to fill the gaps; increasing productivity and efficiency on the whole.

Public Awareness

Foreigners are being scammed by fake Consultancy Firms with the usage of DP10, DP11, terms.
Unsuspecting innocent applicants are paying as much as RM10,000 for DP10 alone.
They ended up with faked  Employment Pass  issued by forgery means using fake companies.

Take NOTE :

DP10 Application Form is not submitted direct to MY Immigration by the Employer/Employee.

I do not wish to state the application process here, or else, those scammers will refine their write-ups to cheat Foreigners.

Go to the IMI Website, the actual application Process is fully stated inside. Only Professional Valid Employers /H.R. Personnel can only understand.
