Spring Forward. Fall Back. Pay an Extra Hour?

On March 11th we will need to “spring” our clocks forward an hour, but how does that affect the pay of hourly workers on duty at 2am? Employers are not required to pay employees an extra hour if they are working when the time changes. If employers do choose to pay their employees for a full eight-hour shift, they do not need to include that hour when determining overtime. Additionally, they may not credit the extra hour as overtime since it is not compensation for time worked.
