===Baby sitter===
# Someone watching children every Shabbat can receive the wages as a gift. <ref> Sh”t Bear Moshe 5:103 </ref>
# A doctor can receive wages for a call he did on Shabbat. <Ref> Sh”t Teshuvot Vehanhagot 1:214, Sh”t Bear Moshe 5:102, Shemirat Shabbat Kehilchata 28:67 (based on Mishna Brurah 306:24), Menuchat Ahava 10:28, Kaf Hachaim 306:36. </ref>
===Chazzan, Bal Koreh, Mashgiach===
# A chazzan, bal koreh, or mashgiach who are only working on Shabbat can receive wages, but it’s better that it’s mixed with payment for some work done on a weekday. <Ref> Sh”t Yabea Omer O”C 5:25 says that since S”A 585:5 says one won’t see any bracha in the money it implies that it’s not forbidden, however S”A 306:5 is strict about this so perhaps S"A retracted from his stringent position. Yalkut Yosef (Shabbat vol 2, pg 121) writes that the minhag is to be lenient to hire Chazanim just for Shabbat as long as one doesn’t speak about the amount on Shabbat. Nonetheless one doesn’t see Bracha from that money and so one should use that money for buying sefarim or the like. Sh”t Tzitz Eliezer 7:28(7), Sh”T Shevet Hakehati 2:103 say if the chazzan or Rabbi spends time prepares for that Shabbat on the weekday it’s certainly permitted. Sh”t Shaarei Ezra allows a Mohel to accept payment as it’s a dvar mitzvah but preferably he should visit the baby before or after Shabbat so the payment is mixed with permissible payment. </ref>
==Renting to a non-Jew==
# Sephardim may rent to a non-Jew an object on Friday which will be used for a Melacha Deoritta (biblically forbidden activity on Shabbat) as long as the non-Jew has time to remove it from the Jew’s house. Ashkenazim should not rent such an object except on Thursday or earlier in the week. <Ref>Menuchat Ahava (vol 1, chap 19 #4) based on S”A and Rama 246:1 </ref>
