when I complained in writing to my supervisors supervisor that she was not
allowing me to claim hours I had worked for example when sent out of town
to a training – I have been put on a corrective action plan and charged
with falsifying my time card by under- reporting my hours worked. How Am I
liable when my supervisor signed off on and controlled what I could claim?

If you are paid on an hourly basis, you must be paid for all hours worked. (If you are salaried, you salary is you only pay, no matter how many hours you work.) If not paid for all hours worked, which includes if the employer will not let you claim or put in a time sheet, etc. for all hours worked, the you could contact your state department of labor to file a wage-and-hour complaint and/or sue for the money.
You may not be disciplined for looking to enforce your legal rights--such as your right to be paid for all hours worked. Punishing you for enforcing your legal rights is illegal and you could again file a complaint with the department of labor or sue.
