A former doctor at Chelsea Football Club, Eva Carneiro, has begun her private employment tribunal hearing against her dismissal which she deems to be unfair. The tribunal offers the football club the last chance to reach a settlement with Carneiro before a public hearing in June.

As well as having an unfair dismissal against the current Premier League champions, the doctor also has a claim against the manager at the time of her termination, Jose Mourinho.

Carneiro is claiming constructive dismissal against Chelsea citing alleged victimisation and discrimination.

The incident which eventually led to her being forced from the club came on the opening day of the current Premier League season. After a player had suffered a head injury, Carneiro ran onto the pitch to treat him, angering Mourinho, who wanted to continue to play despite the injury.

Her presence on the pitch and the treatment of the player led to a touchline spat between the two. As a result of the dispute, Carneiro was banned from attending the ground on matchday and also banned from all first team affairs by Mourinho. As a result, she claims she was effectively ushered from the club. Critics stated that had Carneiro not gone on the pitch to treat the player she could have been dismissed for failing to act on her medical oath.

As a general rule, women are underrepresented in most high paid or high profile professions. While many people believe that this problem will correct itself overtime, for others, positive discrimination is required to catalyze that change.

Positive discrimination involves giving disadvantaged groups who face discrimination in everyday life, such as women, the disabled or ethnic minorities, favourable treatment on the basis of their protected characteristic. An example of this is all-women shortlists for jobs, whereby all the candidates are female and the success of a woman is guaranteed.

The Jospeh Rowntree Foundation (JRF) has released a report examining how location influences employment outcomes for people from ethnic minorities.
