Can an employer just white out an 8 hour shift that you worked and change your total for the week?

Question Details: I was out sick for 2 days, so when I pulled my timesheet out of my desk I noticed it had been written on but not by me. Then I noticed that the 11th was whited out completely and someone whited out my total and rewrote it, plus my clock-out times. I wrote down were 5:10 and 5:05 and someone put zeros there instead, again not me.
