You posted what I would have.

Add into the mix is that he's probably considered a "salaried worker" which give the company the advantage of no overtime and such since it's not considered hourly wages.

So - they should give him the hour without a second thought. Putting aside for the moment that as a comparative new-hire he's trying to impress (and stay employed), it's a sure thing they don't pay him when he works past the official "quitting time".

It becomes a good test as to whether or not the companies worth a career.
