“If my employer aborts my relocation, do I still have to reimburse it if I leave?”

Question: I have worked for a bank in Austin, Texas (my hometown) for five years. A year ago they offered me a promotion that involved relocation to New York City, which I jumped on. In April, 2011 I signed the bank’s standard “Relocation Expense Reimbursement Agreement.” I moved to New York and was there for several weeks, living in a hotel, which cost almost $15,000, when the bank decided that it would rather have me relocate to Idaho.
