OPs boss is an absolute twat if he/she knowingly is forcing them to create a rift in his soon to be expanded family.

This is absolute crap and unprofessional. Op needs to demand their boss have someone else do it.

Such a huge conflict of interest this is.

It's not unprofessional for his boss, because If the future father in law is a bad employee he needs to be let go. Besides for all we know the boss doesn't even know about OP's situation.

I am airing on the side of knowing. Typically those who are family or going to be family are known within companies.

If it is the case it's in bad taste to ask a family member to do something of this nature. I would view it as unprofessional and otherwise something I would never knowingly do to one of my minions. Er--employees/underlings.

However, if the boss doesn't know then OP needs to be vocal about the issue. If the boss still insists then I'd hate to be a fly on the wall when OP tells the future FIL. That's going to be a pretty awkward conversation.

I'd personally like more info on what kind of job this is etc from the OP.

You see, bosses have managers fire peons to save themselves the wasted time of listening to the unwanted former employee whining about their lot in life, how they don't possess the skills to feed their family without this job etc.

I'm sure if you explain the conflict of interest, someone else will be able to do it. If not, hopefully your father in law will understand that you didn't make the decision to fire him and are just doing your job.
