333. Where a collector has reasonable grounds to believe that seizure does not or will not permit the recovery of the sums due from the defendant and is convinced, after examining the defendant’s financial situation, that the defendant is unable to pay, the collector must offer the defendant the option of paying the sums due by means of compensatory work, to the extent that compensatory work programs are available.
All or part of the compensatory work may be replaced by alternative measures to the extent that a judgment execution rules adaptation program, within the framework of an education, public awareness, prevention, intervention, reparation or rehabilitation process, is available.
In this Code, unless the context indicates otherwise, “compensatory work” also refers to the alternative measures provided for in such a program.
