Employer not renewing visa?

I have been working in an LLC company in Doha for the past two years. My ID expired two months ago and the management is not renewing my visa even after many requests. How can I get the visa renewed to avoid troubles connected with expired ID?

The employee can approach the Labour Department if the employer is not renewing the visa/ID. All expatriates residing in the country for any purpose shall obtain a residency permit from the competent authority. According to Article 8 of Entry-Exit Law, the recruiter/employer shall comply with the permit procedures and its renewal thereof within a maximum of 90 days from the date of expiry.

According to Article 40 of the said law, any person who violates the above mentioned provision shall be subject to a fine that shall not exceed QR10,000, without prejudice to any severer penalty stipulated in any other law. by gulf times
