15. The income replacement indemnity is computed in the following manner:
(1) if the victim holds an employment as a salaried worker, the indemnity is computed on the basis of the gross income he derives from his employment;
(2) if the victim is self-employed, the indemnity is computed on the basis of the gross income determined by regulation of the Société for an employment of the same class, or on the basis of the gross income he derives from his employment, if that is higher.
A victim who, by reason of the accident, is deprived of regular benefits or employment benefits established to assist in obtaining skills for employment through a training program under the Act respecting employment insurance in Canada (Statutes of Canada, 1996, chapter 23) to which he was entitled at the time of the accident is entitled to receive an additional indemnity computed on the basis of the benefits that would have been paid to him. These benefits are deemed to form part of his gross income.
