Lisa Jackson, who was the manager for Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House in Savannah from 2005-2010, is suing Deen and Hiers after claiming Hiers brought “inescapable pornography” to the workplace all the time, visited pornographic websites on the kitchen computer and did not log off after using it, TMZ reports.
According to the suit, Hiers also asked Jackson to bring photos of herself to work from when she was younger, reportedly telling her “you have nice legs.”
Hiers is also accused of making comments about other women on staff, calling them “fat girls,” as well as making sexually suggestive and racial jokes.
TMZ reports that Jackson is also claiming that Hiers was violent and allegedly kissed her on the face and spit on her.
Jackson reportedly said she was forced to quit as a result.
Deen and Hiers have not yet commented on the suit.
Jackson was hired as a replacement for an allegedly philandering manager, whom Deen criticized publicly, TMZ reports.
