You'll at least need a vapour barrier if you don't already have one under your slab,and if you do have one then probably an underlayment yes.

It's all right there on the box of flooring, not there you say then look on the companys web site for install directions.
There's hundreds of differant companys making it, and even within the one company there's diffeant types they may sell, all with differant needs to install correctly.
So there is no one ansewer for all laminites.

Is this floor below grade? If so there's some laminites that can not be used.
