Legal Question in Employment Law in New Jersey

Under what federal law, state law (New Jersey), or common law that I can sue my employer force me to lie about my real working hours (threatening me if I did not lie about my real working hours, I would likely to be fired), which are violating ACGME duty hour rules for medical residents. I was a medical resident and I had several duty-hour violations against ACGME medical resident duty hour regulations a year ago due to that I was scheduled to do both hospital patient care and OB-overnight call. Although I complained about the schedule before it was started, the hospital totally ignored my complaint. Later on the hospital found out the violations, and they forced me to delete the hours in violation.
