Note: for more context around the answer to this question, please read this article in conjunction with the answer below.

Seamus: You've got to carry out an audit, and you've got to identify through that audit: Are we a business that has a lot of overtime? How do we pay that overtime, and what do we do when it comes to holiday pay? What does our contract say? So I think it's an audit of all of your contractual documents.

In addition to that, you want to assess what the liability is going to be, and your audit is going to have to look at various factors. And it's the factors that really sit outside of what we would consider the basic pay in the contract.
