Alexander Florian Steciuch's answer It depends on the documents themselves. A Non-Disclosure agreement is usually binding, except in cases where the law would not allow it (such as in mandatory reporting cases, covering up a crime, criminal conspiracy, etc..).

Paul Stanko's answer Indiana is an employment at will state. While that employer conduct seems over the top, your recourse may be limited, unless those policies are being imposed in a discriminatory manner.
Paul Stanko's answer Walmart is known for being litigious. It sounds like you operate a shopping service. If you do not already have a coporate attorney, you should obtain one. It would not hurt to have that attorney review your business model to ensure that you comply with all licensing requirements. Be wary of trademark infringement!
