Hello what do you think is incorrect about this please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know as I have never had this happen to me before, the ACAS site say's a reasonable time for it to be kept on file.... is 12 months a reasonable time?
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
a reasonable time is usually 6-12 months. Too long would be something like 18-24 months but quite often it is 12 months. I have seen dozens of examples of such lengths for warnings to be kept on file

I have worked for him for 3 years and 9 months and has taken me all this time to trust me due to previous empoyees, he also added verbally that someone has been going through his private files in his office and CCTV points to me which is totally incorrect. Can I ask for it to be altered to 6 months ?
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.

There is certainly nothing stopping you from doing so but legally you cannot force him to, if he wants t keep it for 12 months he is within his rights to do so
