Amirah l'Nochri, Part 6

We have been learning about Amirah l'Nochri, asking a non-Jew to perform work on Shabbat that a Jew may not perform personally.
One may allow a non-Jew to perform work for a Jew on Shabbat, even in a public area, if:
(a) If that work is rabbinically prohibited rather than biblically prohibited, and
(b) The work is needed to prevent pain or loss, or for the sake of a mitzvah.
(Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 243-245)
Have a great day,
