Dismissals ― redundancy, seniority and social considerations ― sex discrimination HEADNOTES Facts Hillesland A/S is an industrial enterprise engaged in window glass production and craftsmanlike glass installation; it is situated in a small community outside the city of Haugesund on the Norwegian south-west coast, and organised as a joint stock company with Mr. Hillesland as the majority stockholder and general manager. The company was not affiliated to any employers' association and was not bound by collective agreements. In the fall of 1983 the enterprise in addition to management staff had four depart- ments - a cutting department, a storage department with drivers, a crafts department and a production department.

Operations were at that time running at a considerable loss, in a highly competitive market, and the company for that reason decided to curtail operations and cut down on the number of employees. On November 28, 1983, six employees were given notice of termination, including four female workers who had all been hired in 1975 and had since then worked part-time, mainly in the production department. The three other employees working in that department besides the four women being dismissed, all on full-time,
