Ex Grammys CEO Alleges Harrassment, Corruption at the Recording Academy
Ousted recording academy CEO Deborah Dugan is alleging sexual harassment and corruption in the Grammys voting process. Dugan, who was the academy’s first female CEO, claims gender discrimination, sexual harassment, unlawful retaliation and voting irregularities with respect to the academy’s nomination process.
The academy hit back in a statement saying, “It is curious that Ms. Dugan never raised these grave allegations until a week after legal claims were made against her personally by a female employee who alleged Ms. Dugan had created a ‘toxic and intolerable’ work environment and engaged in ‘abusive and bullying conduct’”. The unfolding events come only three days to this year’s award ceremony.
