Can a company retroactively change a commission plan to avoid paying full commission?

Salesperson here. Recently closed very large deal with customer - they were invoiced and paid within 10 days. Now we have new contracts presented to us retroactive to the beginning of the year that changed the commission. This results in me getting a 40k haircut and no residuals when they add on. Can a company change the commission structure after the fact? Thanks. Willing to engage with lawyer. I have a valid employment contract with company that has been on place for some time. New VP Sales came in, fired most of the sales staff for no reason (they are suing) and has been consistently abusive to all. Lots of threats in e-mails and texts, which I have saved.
