You unfortunately have to grin a bear it on that 9th hour. The exact reverse of this is in the spring when you push the clocks ahead and you get that "Free" hour and only work seven. In the end it balances out. Happens to me every year.
Unfortunately for Mike, it won't balance out in the end. He doesn't work that shift under normal circumstances. This was an OT shift for him, so he got shafted out of that hour's pay (at 1.5x pay). The federal labor laws define your work time as the "hours worked", NOT by what time the clock reads. For example, a pilot who leaves Boston at noon (Eastern)and lands in LA at 2pm (pacific), worked for 5 hours, not 2 hours. The fact that Mike arrived at 11pm and went home at 7 am is irrelevant. He worked for 9 hours that night and should be paid accordingly.
