Grammys head fired over misconduct claim, but other employees allege a 'coup'

When former Recording Academy president/CEO Neil Portnow resigned from his position after he told women they needed to “step up” to win Grammys , he was replaced by executive Deborah Dugan . But just ten days before the awards ceremony Dugan has been removed from her position at the company, the Los Angeles Times first reported.

New York Timesreports thatit’s because “of concerns raised to the Recording Academy board of trustees, including a formal allegation of misconduct by a senior female member of the Recording Academy team,” the academy said in a statement. A source close to the events told the paper that an assistant accused Dugan of “a bullying management style.”

The New York Timesalso reports that Dugan sent a memo to HR three weeks before her removal with concerns about the organization’s practices, which included conflicts of interests with board members and “voting irregularities.” Yikes!None of this negates the fact that an assistant filed a misconduct claim that was serious enough to cause her to take a leave of absence from work. But the sources in both these pieces suggest this isn’t a black and white issue of a misconduct claim in a time where the Academy might be resistant to change, especially at the hands of a woman executive.
