    No he's not. He's an employee and/or director of a business that supplies a service to its clients. In that capacity, he's just as liable to work overtime as anybody else with a job.

      Ok your point is valid but it isn't 'overtime' it would be 'extra time'. Pedantry about the terminology I guess but I think it is important to use the correct term if you are going to differentiate yourself as a company from a permie. To a permie it is over and above his contracted hours, to me it's extra billable work.
