Former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro’s lawyers have served notice on the club that she intends to seek a claim for constructive dismissal.
It is understood that a claim form was served on Chelsea this week to commence a claim in the employment tribunal unless an out-of-court settlement can be agreed before a hearing takes place.
An employment tribunal hearing would take place in public and could be potentially embarrassing for the club.
The doctor was dropped from first-team duties on 8th August after she and a physio John Fearn were criticised by manager Jose Mourinho, who called them naive for going on to the pitch to treat an injured Eden Hazard – the player had to leave the field temporarily as a result meaning Chelsea were briefly down to nine men, after already having had a player sent off.
