I signed a contract which contained the following retention

I signed a contract which contained the following retention bonus terms:"5. EMPLOYMENT-AT-WILL: Information given in this correspondence, as well as your response, is not intended to create a contract, nor is it to be construed to constitute contractual obligations of any kind or a contract of employment between NCGS and any of its employees. Your employment relationship with NCGS is at-will. While we certainly hope that the employment relationship will be mutually beneficial and rewarding, both you and NCGS are free to terminate the employment relationship at any time, with OR without cause and with or without notice.6. COMPENSATION: Your pre-tax compensation wilt be an annual salary of One Hundred Twelve Thousand and Five Hundred Dollars and No Cents ($112,500), which paid bi-weekly, is approximately Four Thousand Three Hundred and Twenty-Six Dollars and Ninety-Two Cents ($4,326.92). Additionally, you will be entitled to a pretax sign on bonus of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000), 50% of which will be paid after ninety (90) days of successful employment, The remaining 50% will be paid upon completion of one year of employment. The full bonus amount must be repaid in the event that you quit or are terminated for cause within the first eighteen (18) months of your employment"in June 2016.In December 2016, the company released a company wide "mandatory non-compete agreement" that required a signature in exchange for continued employment and a Christmas bonus check. The non-compete agreement was extremely restrictive in that it stated that it prohibited one from seeking employment for a period of 2 years in any industry related to the medical field, including the medical field anywhere in the world.Further, the company engaged in quite nefarious practices and demonstrated a management style which would make almost anyone feel very uncomfortable and would make them not want to continue with the company. These practices include a potential claim of "slander".The question I want answered is, "is it legal for a company to offer a retention bonus, and after one has already signed a contract for such a bonus, change the employment environment to uncivil and unbearable including issuing a mandatory requirement to sign a non-disclosure agreement for continued employment, and still have a contractual basis to collect the money disbursed as a part of the original employment contract"?Also note, I did only received $5000 of the $10,000 and the disbursement was not a pre-tax disbursement. And, there was no terms for repayment listed in the original contract, yet the employer is attempting to get me to pay interest, and pay at a rate of about $900 per month to pay the $4400 back. They kept a portion of my last paycheck but allocated the money in a fashion such that they short changed me about $150 of the money retained from my last paycheck. And they have had the Human Resources Manager email me on at least 3 occasions with 2 other individuals on the email, one being one of 2 company attorneys and the other the VP of Finance, the person who originally signed the original employment agreement, demanding that I sign a repayment schedule of about $900 per month and agreeing to the interest payment.

In 2012 a bank that I was employed at gave me a $71,500 performance retention bonus as they were in financial difficulties and didn't want me to leave. The one page letter of agreement states: Failure to remain working at ... ... through five (5) years from your signed date of acceptance will automatically result in your agreement to the requirement to repay the $71,500 performance retention bonus. That bank was acquired later on and then acquired this year by a third bank. I left in November and now the current bank wants the bonus back.My question is, there was no mention of any successors in the agreement. Do I have to pay?
