Falsifying Documents and need some advice.

This is the original problem from an employee...
After 6 years at my position I was written up for the first time for having 'falsified a document." The document is a check list that my supervisor created to help me in my position and so that he can see what I have accomplished in my day or what still needs to done. The document also acts as a check list for my supervisor so when he fills in at my position when I am gone for more than a day or two, he can see what may need to be done or what may be 'pending'. I had approved time off for a week and when I returned I was informed I was written up for falsifying a document because I had checked an item on this check list as completed when it was not fully completed. Am I guilty of falsifying a document? Does a check list count as a document in this case? Even if it is not kept on file, on record? A little more information, at the time this was created I was not informed that it was an official document. I do not have to sign nor initial this check list. Also, there is no disclaimer which states that I'm legally binding myself that all items listed as completed or not completed are actually as they state. When I do this form generally, I correctly mark everything. Unfortunately, in this case, I was in a hurry and had to rush to get everything on his desk before I left.

It is a "document", and there is a difference between fraud and a mistake. It is inevitable that any document will have errors. Humans make mistakes.... period. So do computers.
