Your post is a bit garbled, from a stranger's perspective. You don't bother to mention what the compensation or restitution was for, though one can guess it had something to do with shoes.
If you're non-exempt and an employer's trying to dock earned pay for time already worked, that wouldn't be lawful. If you mean change your hours/shorten your work week, that wouldn't be unlawful. If someone's taking $$ for time already worked/earned from check, you can file a wage claim with the state labor dept.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
