I was working as CM on short term position for 6 years. Company announced long term position on same job where I am participating. There was disciplinary investigation before on some minor issue where head of HR and my line manager were involved. I am claiming this disciplinary sanction in the court at the moment, against HR manager and line manager.
I have interview on a permanent position where my line manager (the one against who i have claim in the civil court as he was head of disciplinary panel ) is the interviewer. Is my manager in conflict of interest in this case during the interview ?
