I am under threat of redundancy two of us have to apply for

Customer Question

I am under threat of redundancy two of us have to apply for the same job. I had a date for an operation prior to notice- I have just got out of hospital and have been given a six week sick note by the hospital. My interview is Tuesday week.
I had put a formal complaint about my line manager prior to all of this and agreed to an ACAS meditation- this still hasn't happened six weeks later. I have to go to this interview with my line manager and he will have written my skills audit.
