Company wide bonuses, except for 2 'not eligible'

Here's the situation. I've worked for the same small (less than 50 employees, all salaried) company for 6.5 years. Many changes in management, the latest being a new CEO 2.5 years ago. The vast majority of employees were hired under the new CEO. I have received a level of bonus of between 4.5-10% (max) every year. Suddenly this year, now I have been categorized as 'not eligible' to receive a bonus because all of the newer hires have a clause in their offer letters stating 'up to 10% bonus', where I and a couple other employees do not. Oddly, one of those employees is receiving a bonus. I am located in California. While I realize I'm being targeted, and they hope for me to leave the company (which I'm working on), I would like to know if there are any CA labor laws or precedents that prohibit the company from excluding certain employees from a company wide bonus pool. Kind Regards, A Target-sorry for the anonymity, but you probably understand.
