Is it legal for your manager to force you to come in and work off the clock without pay if he/she was not satisfied with a cleaning job?

I work at a yogurt shop and my manager sent out a memo saying that if she was not satisfied about our cleaning job at closing she will make us come in and work off the clock. I have learned also that if we refuse it will be a risk to our job and we may be terminated. Is my boss allowed to do this?
