My employer is asking me to report two half days off as one day off. Is this legal?

I understand that California employers aren't required to give Paid Time Off to employees, and thatstate regulations that make taking half of a day off accumulate differently than in other states, but my HR person has stated to me via email:
"If your plan is to take two half days instead of one full day, then it has to show on your timesheet as 8 hours in one day"
This seems like fudging somehow, or else why would I be asked to report something other than my actual hours? Or is request not a problem?
I've looked through the State of California Division of Labor Standards website for awhile but I'm having trouble finding this information. If you could point me in the right direction, that would be great.
