Click on the Home > Flooring link right under your question for a number of prior similar questions with answers - a few of those are also linked right below this answer.

Basically speaking, for rectangular room snap-floor planking without special patterns or odd cuts, about $1.50-2.50/SF for install labor - on up to $3-5/SF for cut-in patterns, significant amount of stairs, diagonal-install, etc.

When you say labor - if you are buying the flooring be sure to specify in contract exactly what you are supplying and that the contrator provides all other necessary materials, tools and labor - because just the flooring and a warm body does not a floor install ! And if you are providing the flooring material, be sure CONTRACTOR specifies in writing on the contract the acclimatization time and method (wrapper on or off, air gap under or not) for curing the boards before installation, so he cannot come back later and say any problems were due to you not doing proper acclimatization of the materials. Contract should also specify that he accepts the owner furnished materials as suitable for use on the job and includes the materials in his warranty - otherwise you are out of luck on warranty because YOU provided the materials, not him.
