I would say the cories will not mess with the adult shrimp but they might eat the babies. Although they are mainly scavengers like snakeskinner said they can be opportunistic. You should play it on the safe side and keep them seperate or just add a few cories and a few shrimp in the same tank and see what happens. Whatever you do though I wouldnt put them all together, not just because of them possibly eating the shrimp fry but because the extra waste produced by the corries might have a negative effect on the shrimp. Shrimp prefer clean nitrate free water, or close to it, so it is usually best to keep them in a species only setup.
