(2) A complaint made under WAC 392-190-065 through 392-190-075 may be held in abeyance pending the outcome of any proceeding in state or federal court or before a local, state or federal agency in which the same claim or claims are at issue, whether under RCW 28A.640.040, 28A.642.040, or any other law.
