Hello Blondie St05
Welcome to Just Answer and thank you for your question.
The current statutory minimum of holidays is 24 days and this can include bank holidays, as there is no right to have bank holidays in addition to holiday. This will increase to 28 days in April.
However, your circumstances are such that as your employer accepted 28 days paid holiday (including bank holidays), then they must continue with this. Even if there is breach of your employment contract, they have accepted the breach.
Your employer is not able to change any aspect of your contract, including holidays without your consent and if they try to do so, the changed terms will be enforceable. It would be adviseable to immediately write to your employer and let them know that you do not agree to the change in contract terms.
I hope that helps. If it does, please see below. Otherwise, I'll try to answer any further queries you have.
