Daylight Saving Time Pay

Hi, I am a nursing student and I recently started working as an HHA to gain experience. I was put on a case and I absolutely adore my patient. I am not loving my agency. This weekend I worked a 13-hour shift from 7pm to 7am but because of daylight savings time, my 12-hour shift became a 13-hour shift. The agency told me I will not be paid for that hour because there is not 25 hours in a day and no way for them to add that hour into the payroll. They said in the spring I would get the hour when the clocks go back. Does this seem correct? I think I should be paid for all the hours I worked when I worked them not months later.

According to federal labor law you are to be paid for that hour. However, that being said, I have never been paid for that hour. They always say you will get it back in the spring. Never happened to me as I never seem to be working that particular shift when ‘payback’ time rolls around.
