Hi ,

a foreign company is having a contract with a consultant.

consultant is performing the services and practice in Malaysia branch office.

relations between foreign company and consultant is service provider and not between employer and employee. ( no EPF contribution, Tax deduction)

now foreign company wants to terminate the contract with consultant.

question : 

is the consultant protected under Malaysia labour law?(because his services are performed in malaysia)

do we need to compensate him on this termination?

The consultant does not come under the Employment Act. If he wants to sue he can go to court and sue.
