Will you be having panties with your entree at Panda Express?
One former team member claims that she was forced to strip during a team building activity with her asian cuisine preparing crew. You know, like the Ropes Course or the Trust Falls, like they did in Mean Girls.
Former Team Member, Jennifer Spargifiore, an ex California team member is coming forward about an incident tha took place in 2019.
Spargifiore said the event was provided by Panda Express, and ran by the team building events company, Alive Seminars and Coaching Academy. The former team member explained that these activities were usually "prerequesites for promotion," according to NBC.
The restaurant denies the allegations, but according to the case, Spargifiore says employees were asked to provide their work ID so the cost of the course would be debited from their employee accounts.
Spargifiore recounts that she was asked to strip in front of the Alive Seminars team building employees, who were noticeably staring at female employees during their undress.
