For clarification, there are many people in my constituency who work in the tourism industry. In some cases, what happens is that one applies for a job, interviews for the job, agrees to start the job on Monday, working four days a week at x rate of pay, and does so. Custom and practice means that what one has is therefore a contract of employment. Although it is not written down, that is a legally binding arrangement, to which all employment laws should apply.
