Yeah E would be apropriate if slightly modified.

Out of all A has the best construction. Proper subjunctive mood and subject-verb agreement

Out of give choices, I will also go with (A).

But still is not completely correct, verb "pay" is plural while it should be "pays" to go along with "company" and "its".

Please correct me if I am wrong!

I go with A.. It is the most clear.

E is wrong because you do not know who actions refers to. As suggested, if theirwas added it would be good choice.

This is a subjunctive problem. The intial verb is one of command (require) do we have to use a that and put the second verb in the subjunctive mood - the simple form (be, do have, go, etc.). So, we can eliminate B and D for no that and no "pay". We can also eliminate C for the use of their referring to the word company. And E has a very awkward structure: whose actions? The correct answer is A.
