Retroactive pay reduction

Can an employer state in their handbook, if an employee quits, or doesn’t show up for work, the employer will reduce their last paycheck to minimum wage? I know an employer can reduce an employee,ouees payat anytime, but wouldn’t this be retroactively reducing their pay? One could argue the employee didn’t plan on quitting during the hours worked for the last paycheck.

Unless there was an agreement otherwise, and unless the employee never received prior notice of the policy, in my opinion this is legal.
