RCW 36.45.010 states that “all claims against a county must be made in the manner described in Chapter 4.96 rcW.” Chapter 4.96 RCW states that “filing a claim within the statutory time limit is a precondition for the initiation of an action for damages.”  RCW 4.96.010 (1).

Seattle Prof`l Eng`g, 139 Wash.2d at 830-31, 991 p.2d 1126.  12 RCW 49.52.070 does not offer legal recourse for the county`s alleged “delay” in paying overtime and other additional wages until the next pay date, After the correctors deserve them.5 So even looking at the facts, we are in the most favorable light for the correctors,6 that the corrective agents cannot prove that the county violated RCW 49.52.070.
