Q: my boss refused to give me my check untill i convinced someone to take money instead of sueing him

it was alleged that i was in a fender bender in A company truck. the other party would like to contact our insurance and make a claim. when payday came my boss told me that i had to go convince this other party to take a money bribe and not call his insurance, well i did not do that so he kept my money from me for weeks. then the other party decided to make a claim, so he said i can have a portion of my check but the rest he was keeping. said he needed it to pay the deductible on his insurance.

is this ok? isnt it theft. he straight up stole my money then tried to get me to bribe another person for his benefit in order to be given my pay check for the labor i provide for his company. then when i didnt, he openly my money...withoutt my permission. i dontt care what he took my money for that is my money.. and can he force me to bribe someone?

i am asking from a legal standpoint is this illeagal , is there anything i can do like press charges for any of the things he has done
