A: It's unclear what you mean by "null". Assuming your employer has breached the contract, no, it's not null (no longer enforceable by either party), but you could sue the employer for breach of contract.

A: It would be helpful to review the terms of your "work contract." If you have an actual employment contract, the terms of your employment should be incorporated, especially terms concerning breaches of the contract and your rights pursuant to the contract . More information is needed as it is doubtful that you worked for two weeks with the understanding that you would not be paid.
