Chelsea sacked Mutu last month for gross misconduct after failing a drugs test.
Mutu was handed a seven-month ban by The Football Association for the offence which was extended worldwide.
The Romanian international is now seeking his sacking to be looked into and Mutu must attend a hearing at which the Premier League will allow both him and Chelsea to make their cases.
If either party is unhappy with the verdict reached, they can make a final appeal to the Football League Appeals Committee.
No date as yet has been announced for when the hearing will take place.
