If you are referring to pay you have not yet received, probably so as long as the criteria apply to everyone. It would likely depend on whether the bonus program is in writing and, if so, what that writing states. If you are referring to wages you already received that they are trying to recoup, possibly not. You should seek in-person advice from an experienced employment law attorney who practices in the state where you are employed to be sure.
