Q: Job Repayment Obligation

Hi, I am trying to understand repayment money I owe to my previous employer. Here is what happened, I started working remotely in May 2020 but did not move to actual location until August 2020 due to Covid-19 pandemic. I quit my job in May 2021, one year after I was hired. Relocation contract states that "I further agree in the event I resign or abandon my employment with the Company, for any reason, within the twelve (12) month period following my effective start date at my destination location (defined as my first day of active employment at the destination location), I shall pay to the Company all relocation expenses incurred by the Company in connection with my relocation, including, but not limited to, the cost of living adjustment payments, miscellaneous allowances, lump sum allowances, payments related to loss on sale of home, home sale incentives, destination rental assistance, and tax gross-up assistance.
