  This is the problem the employee is having:  
Yesterday, I input an incorrect computer command when performing my system-check work. I immediately informed my supervisor and two other senior staff members. Each one told me I should not be concerned, as it would not adversely affect the system. About 5 hours later, an issue did arise as a result of the improper command. Our system experts were able to resolve the problem, but not before it gave everyone a big scare. When management questioned my supervisor, he told them that I did not report my mistake until when the system issue occurred. He told them that to supposedly "protect me," as well as for the sake of the team, and he assured me that I would not get in trouble because I am relatively new (and do not know better). Management continued to question others and found inconsistencies in their stories, that led them to believe that I did immediately report my mistake. Today my supervisor called me to prep me on what I should say Monday if I am questioned, which has me corroborating with their stories. I feel very uncomfortable lying, especially when such would negatively reflect on my competence. But would the alternative be worse; which is to alienate the people with whom I work each day, and even possibly cost someone his job?
