The case against Mourinho would continue even if the Portuguese leaves Chelsea.
The former first team medic is suing Mourinho for sexual discrimination. She is also said to be claiming for reinstatement to her role at the club.
Mourinho criticised Carneiro when she ran on the pitch to treat Belgian star Eden Hazard at the request of referee Michael Oliver during the final stages of the Premier League fixture between Swansea v Chelsea on August 8.
Mourinho was seen shouting angrily while watching Carneiro from the touchline, before exchanging words as she came down the touchline to return to the dug-out.
He immediately demoted the Gibraltar-born medic straight after the game, and she left the club thereafter.
Mourinho was cleared of using discriminatory language following an investigation by the FA. However Carneiro later came out to say she was not spoken to personally during the investigation, nor asked to provide any statement.
