If you feel you need to seek medical treatment, before you can return to duty you will a need a full medical release, along with the mandatory Post incident Drug and Alcohol test documentation.

Do PlaneTechs contractors ever get hired as permanent workers?
There are a few different scenarios where a contractor could be hired on as a direct employee. The assignment may be a transparent, temp-to-perm model and you will be fully aware that that is our client’s objective as we place you on assignment. Other times, our client may want to hire you directly from the get go... but in most situations it is our client’s need to have contract labor to support temporary fluctuation in work load. Remember, you work for PlaneTechs, so any discussion of permanent placement would start with your recruiter.
