As previously reported, Arianne Zucker (Nicole, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) has filed a lawsuit against Corday Productions Inc., the soap’s executive producer Ken Corday, and former executive producer Albert Alarr. Her suit alleges that she experienced sexual harassment from Alarr and that Corday Productions not only did not respond to those accusations adequately but also did not enter into contract negotiations “in good faith.”
In response to Zucker’s lawsuit, a DAYS spokesperson issued a statement to Soap Opera Digest that read: “The allegations in Ms. Zucker’s lawsuit are without merit. Corday Productions offered to renew Ms. Zucker’s contract including offering her a pay increase. Rejecting Ms. Zucker’s counteroffer does not constitute retaliation. Complaints about Mr. Alarr’s on-set behavior were promptly investigated. Corday Productions fully cooperated with the impartial investigation and subsequently terminated Mr. Alarr.”
