§ 779.312 “Retail or service establishment”, defined in section 13(a)(2).
The 1949 amendments to the Act defined the term “retail or service establishment” in section 13(a)(2). That definition was retained in section 13(a)(2) as amended in 1961 and 1966 and is as follows:
It is clear from the legislative history of the 1961 amendments to the Act
that no different meaning was intended by the term “retail or service establishment” from that already established by the Act
's definition, wherever used in the new provisions, whether relating to coverage or to exemption. (See S. Rept. 145, 87th Cong., first session p. 27; H.R. 75, 87th Cong., first session p. 9.) The legislative history of the 1949 amendments and existing judicial pronouncements regarding section 13(a)(2) of the Act
, therefore, will offer guidance to the application of this definition.
