Retail and service establishments are defined in labor law.

The Implementing Rules of R.A. 6727 (Wage Rationalization Act) provides for the definition:

“Retail Establishment” is one principally engaged in the sale of goods to end-users for personal or household use;

“Service Establishment” is one principally engaged in the sale of service to individuals for their own or household use and is generally recognized as such;

Thus, establishments should check whether they fall under the above definitions.
