Resigned and not paid bonus

Hi, I recently resigned from my employer due to a personal issue. Since I resigned they held my bonus but paid out the other supervisors that were under me. When reaching out to someone in the company about it they stated that since I resigned before the 21st they don't have to pay out my bonus. Can they do this even though the payout was for June bonus, but they payout in July?

I'm sorry but this isn't enough information to answer the question. It depends on whether there is a written bonus plan or policy, whether the bonus is discretionary or part of your negotiated compensation, whether it is a commission, etc. Many companies do have policies whereby employees are not eligible to receive bonuses unless they are employed there on the day the bonuses are distributed.
