Not necessarily plus it depends what's in the employment contract.

During the last recession (1990s) when I was a young, impecunious, fresh-faced and newly qualified accountant, I lied about my qualification. No-one wanted to recruit Chartered Accountants and I needed to pay for a roof over my head. My newly-acquired Lettuce after my name were omitted and I just became someone who'd work in accounts.

I'd have like to have seen a Court's reaction if I brought a case of unfair dismissal for being dismissed for being over-qualified

However, in the OP's case, a log book is a legal document and your employer would have the right to check it. But, if it's just a matter of getting a foot in the door and your typing skills are rubbish, you could give it a shot but come clean later

Cheers
