laminate floor creaks. What's normal?

last month

I recently had a beautiful laminate floor installed throughout my house. I LOVE the product (Krono Swiss "Sunshine"). The installers did a lot of leveling to prep the floor with cement, grinding etc. After installation there were a couple of places they had to fix because there was movement (the boards moved up and down slightly when stepped on). They fixed those two places. Now I'm noticing a few more places that "creak" when stepped and I'm getting paranoid. What is normal for a laminate floor? Should there be NO creaking? Should I not be able to feel ANY movement if even slight? I don't want to be neurotic but I'm concerned that one thing will lead to another. I'd like insight from other flooring pros before I call the installers again. Thank you
