A reprimand isn't the equivalent of a legal action, it is, rather, an internal policy matter between employer and employees. There is, as such, no legal limitation on how long an employer has to reprimand an employee. Unless the employer has contractually limited itself to a time limit in which it may reprimand, then it is free to reprimand indefinitely on the matter. Generally, only a unionized employer would have a limitation period on time it can discipline, and that would have been negotiated with the union first.
