My boyfriend and I work for a landscaping company owned by my father. We work exclusively outside in the neighborhood, not entering anyone's home. The company has no policy on handguns. A few people have complained about my boyfriend's legal weapon, which he is licensed to carry. Our contract with the neighborhood specifies nothing about weapons on the property at all. Can these complainers cause problems for my dad's company? Do they have grounds at all of trying to revoke our contract?

If you're working on someone else's land and they don't want your boyfriend to carry a gun, then he can't carry it. And if he does, then yes, your father can be liable, as you and your boyfriend represent his company. It's like if a JB Hunt truck driver (biggest assholes on the interstate, by the way) runs into a car, killing the occupants because he's DUI, JB Hunt can be successfully sued because of low standards of employee training and supervision.
