EEOC Paper
I. Background: Panda Express is part of the largest and fastest growing Asian restaurant company in the United States, the Panda Restaurant Group (PRG). It is designed for people who enjoy the taste of Chinese cuisine and is clearly the growth engine of PRG ( Panda Restaurant Group, nd). In August 2011 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit against Panda Express for discrimination/national origin bias. According to the EEOC, the general manager of a Panda Express in San Jose California discriminated against the Latino workers and favored the Asian workers over Latino workers. The ...view middle of the document...

It was also determined that the company had a written policy against discrimination but failed to implement it. Through conciliation, a pre-litigation settlement was attempted with no success. The EEOC filed the lawsuit seeking monetary compensation on behalf of Latino workers. Panda Express will be required to conduct training on anti discrimination laws and other measures to prevent discrimination in the future.
IV. Promoting Social Change: Social change is the process whereby the values, attitudes, or institutions of society are modified. It includes the natural process and the actions initiated by members of a group or community ( Mondofacto, nd). As stated in the law suit, Panda Express was ordered to conduct anti- discrimination training and post anti-discrimination notices throughout the work site. In this case, the group (Latino workers), worked collectively to defend themselves and address the issue of discrimination by their managers. Taking these steps will promote and lead to positive social change within the company and hopefully throughout the community. The EEOC has said that since its lawsuit Panda Express has improved its practices under new management.
V. News Release Comparison: This lawsuit was covered by local media on the west coast including San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland. After reviewing the EEOC’s press release, the news articles from the San Francisco Chronicle, and MecuryNews.com of the Bay Area News Group, there were not many differences between the three. Each article was thorough in addressing the facts of the lawsuit and the information reported was almost identical. The biggest difference between the three articles was the tone and the choice of words that were used. The EEOC press release had a more professional tone and carefully chosen words to ensure they did not offend. The news articles seemed to be more provoking in their reporting and used words that would incite anger in the Latino community. For example, the EEOC’s press release the same information read “Chinese fast food restaurant chain Panda Restaurant Group violated federal law by treating its Latino employees differently from Asian workers at one of its San...
