In the United States, it's illegal to deduct so much from a paycheck that it would end up being less than minimum wage. If she lives in the United States, and if they did deduct enough from her paycheck that it came in under minimum wage, tell her to report it to the Department of Labour. Supposedly the DoL is quite strict about these types of things. They will make sure she gets paid at least minimum wage for the amount of hours she worked.

My grandmother worked at Dillard’s and they would do similar, illegal things to their paycheck. If they report they get fired.

Typically they made her work off of the clock a few hours. She worked 11 hours and got paid 8.

Edit: big companies find ways to screw over their impoverished workers. Lowes let her go because she had cancer. Macy’s laid her off and she had to threaten to sue to get her severance.That’s why I don’t mind ripping them off for a few high dollar items.
