Firstly, thanks for any info you may be able to give me.
I run quite a large ecommerce site that has a successful affiliate program, since mid last year one of my affiliates has been using a 302 redirect to my site with an affiliate link.
At first I thought great, he's ranking well, alongside me and whatever happens I get the sale, but as of late he's gone up and i'v gone down, way down.
After reading the article about 302 hijacking, Im now wondering whether google may class this as duplicate content or treat this domain as a better one of my own and thus rate it higher, obviosuly im paying the affiliate and don't want this to happen.

Do a site search in Google. Check the results. If you see any other domains there besides your own, there is a good chance that a 302 is in place and that there are problems.
If your affiliate has moved up and you've moved down, there is a strong chance that his 302 is having a negative impact on your domain based on all of the information that is available on the 302 Pagejacking issues.
