Boss Asks Me To Lie to Help Hiim

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about misstating facts to cover shortfalls:

I have to do a daily cycle count of inventory that is turned in to the home office. The company does cycle counts daily instead of a yearly physical inventory. The cycle counts are never to the home offices liking, and my manager was getting bad feedback from his bosses. So he asked me to adjust the inventory to make it seem better than it is.

I know what I am doing is against company procedures, and I could get fired. I have been doing this for a year now. I worry all the time that at some point someone is going to catch me. The stress caught up with me on January 24 2009, the day I had a heart attack. After going back to work two months after my heart attack. I found out that he didn’t allow the other employees to falsify the cycle count. So I stopped too, until he got in trouble for the cycle counts for the last two months going bad. Now he has asked me to start again. I am ready to stop doing this for him. I feel I could lose my job if I tell the home office what I have been doing. Is there anything to help me?
