There are various issues which may suggest that you are not being treated fairly but at this stage it may not be that easy to pinpoint and show with certainty that what you believe may be happening is definitely the case. That is one of the things that only time will tell and you will have to see how things unfold.
Whatever the case, if your employer is trying to make you redundant, they must ensure that this is done fairly and following a fair and objective procedure. Even though the boss may have the final say, they still need to show there has been a fair selection method used to come to their choice of who is to be made redundant.
For the time being the employer’s actions could be construed as unfair treatment if it is clear that you are not being treated equally or given the same opportunities as others, or directly being overlooked for specific things. How you deal with that is up to you – the first step is usually to try and resolve the issued directly with the person responsible, following it up with a formal grievance if needed. However, after that the options become somewhat limited and short of resigning and claiming constructive dismissal, you are best advised to leave it and see what the employer does with this redundancy and then challenge any potential unfair dismissal that may result, depending on their reasons for potentially choosing you.
