31. If the victim obtains or returns to an employment, the income replacement indemnity ceases to be paid.
Nevertheless, if, by reason of the injury sustained, the victim earns from such employment a gross income that is less than that used in computing his income replacement indemnity, at the time of the accident, he is entitled to the income replacement indemnity reduced by an amount equivalent to fifty per cent of the net income earned from such other employment not exceeding $5 000 or, if such income exceeds $5 000, fifty per cent of the first $5 000 and seventy-five per cent of the remainder. Only the part of the gross income over $1 000 is taken into consideration.
However, if the victim contemplated in section 22 has become of full age or becomes so subsequently, the gross income established in the third paragraph of section 22 is used in making the computation.
The provisions of the second paragraph of section 26 concerning the minimum indemnity do not apply to the second paragraph.
