Where my Mum works because the shop is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Easter Sunday they have to take the days out of their holiday entitlement. Is this legal? It is a large company.

Yes. At present the law states:

You do not have a statutory right to paid leave on bank and public holidays. If paid leave is given on a bank or public holiday, this can count towards your four weeks minimum holiday entitlement. There are eight permanent bank and public holidays in Great Britain.

Here are the proposed changes, that will hopefully give extra statutory holiday rights to all workers: x.html
