For auditing policy violators, Google explains, both primary and secondary Google User Account email addresses are checked when considering if a user passes a policy. And, any user violating policy will be highlighted on the Suite Admin User's report. Once users who are violating policy are found, administrators can add those users and they will appear in the Audit report seen with a red (!) icon in the picture below:
