EMPLOYMENT CATEGORIES AND CORRESPONDING GROSS INCOMES
1. The employment categories are the occupational titles contained in the “Professions” file of the computerized data listing on educational and occupational training “Répertoire informatisé des données en information scolaire et professionnelle” (Repères) by the Société de gestion du réseau informatique des commissions scolaires (Société GRICS).
2. Gross income corresponding to each employment category is the amount that represents the median on the scale of the annual average minimum earnings indicated in the listing for each occupation. Where the lower limit on the scale is absent or equal to zero, gross income is the amount that represents the upper limit of the average minimum earnings.
Where the average minimum earnings shown is the hourly wage, it shall be calculated on an annual basis by multiplying it by 2000.
3. Changes made to the listing during a year become an integral part of this Regulation from the next 1 January.
4. Notwithstanding section 2, the gross income of a victim for whom the Société determines employment under section 48 of the Act cannot be lower than gross income determined on the basis of the minimum wage as defined in section 3 of the Regulation respecting labour standards (chapter N-1.1, r. 3), projected on an annual basis by multiplying it by 2000.
Where employment determined under this section is part-time employment, gross income is established on the basis of the minimum wage prescribed in the preceding paragraph and projected on an annual basis by multiplying it by the number of hours for which the victim is considered fit to hold employment.
5. Notwithstanding section 2, gross income cannot be higher than the Maximum Yearly Insurable Earnings set by section 54 of the Automobile Insurance Act (chapter A-25).
