    In place of my friend.

    Can you please tell me if the use 'in place of' is correct in the following sentence? And can you tell me if another option is possible for 'in place of'?

    My friend is sick today and he didn't come to the job.I am working in place of my friend.

    Re: In place of my friend.

    My friend is sick/ill today and didn't come to work. I am working in his/her place.

    You could say "I'm doing his/her work for him/her". You could "I'm working instead" if you weren't scheduled to work today but you have been called in because he/she is sick.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
