1-Each of them will not get paid.
2-Every one of them will not get paid.


Do sentences 1 and 2 mean:
a-None of them will get paid.
or:
b-Not all of them will get paid.


Is this sentence correct:


3-Their friendship will work provided that each of them will not disrespect the others.

Gratefully,
Navi.

Re: each/wvery/

Logically both 1 and 2 are equivalent to "None of them will get paid," which is what you should say rather than either 1 or 2, because both 1 and 2 are very unnatural and awkward.

3 is also incorrect. Replace will not with does not.
