The complaint also stated that Dugan was paid less than former academy CEO Neil Portnow, who left the post past year, and that she was also subject to retaliation for refusing to hire Portnow as a consultant for almost half his former salary. There was a complaint about his conduct, he continued, but: "An in-depth independent investigation by experienced and highly regarded lawyers was conducted and I was completely exonerated".
"She started by stating that" There are unquestionably unbelievable, wonderful people who work there at the recording academy and on the Board", before outlining her allegation of sexual harassment from the Academy general counselor Joel Katz, which she claims happened in a dinner May after she had been confirmed as the company's new president and CEO.
The Grammy Awards will begin Sunday at 5 p.m. The artist was not named.
In a statement this week, Portnow wrote, "This [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] document is filled with inaccurate, false and outrageous and terribly hurtful claims against me".
In the explosive document he indicated, for example, that he was asked to hire his predecessor, Neil Portnow, as a consultant, despite the accusations against him of allegedly violating a foreign artist who remains under anonymity after a performance he gave at Carnegie Hall from NY.
Portnow, a 72-year-old former record label executive, did not seek an extension of his contract and left the CEO post last year after 17 years.
Dugan attends the 20th annual Latin GRAMMY Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 14, 2019 in Las Vegas. Portnow again apologized for the comment on Wednesday.

Executive Director and President of the Suspended Recording Academy Deborah Dugan He has claimed that he has evidence that the Grammy nominations have been corrupted.
Ousted Recording Academy boss Deborah Dugan - who this week filed an explosive claim against the organization, calling the Grammys a "boys' club" and claiming there were rape allegations against former CEO Neil Portnow - appeared on "Good Morning America" to say the academy is rife with corruption and harassment.
"The Grammys really is on life support right now", Dugan's attorney Douglas Wigdor said on Good Morning America.
Overall, she said some 30 artists whose work was not chosen as a potential nominee by the Recording Academy membership were added to that list because they had personal or business relationships with people on the nomination committees or the Academy's board. The academy, which has accused Dugan of misconduct, has said it has launched an investigation. Those probes have yet to be completed. "Incredibly, this artist is also represented by a member of the Board".
"I felt like I was being tested in how much I would acquiesce", she said. Regarding Little, Wigdor emphasized the complaint was made by an administrative assistant who worked for Portnow.
Dugan says the Academy retaliated against her by putting her on leave for alleged misconduct and bullying. "Mr. Katz categorically and emphatically denies his version of that night" and said that "he will cooperate in each and every investigation or lawsuit with the absolute truth".
In the grand scheme of it all, allegations of insider activity pale in comparison to the more severe claims of a work environment rife with sexual assault and harassment. "It is deeply disturbing to us - and quite frankly, heartbreaking - to witness the firestorm against our organization that has been unleashed", the statement reads. "We have collectively volunteered many years of service guiding and supporting this organization".
