The moisture comes up through the slab, hits the barrier, and starts moving sideways until it finds the end of the barrier. You could create moisture problems for the surrounding cubicles.

Based on your description, the amount of moisture here sounds minimal, so it may not be a problem. But I would hate to see someone read this and think it would work anywhere. I am working with a clinic in South Florida that is replacing thousands of dollars of linoleum because the flooring contractor did exactly what you describe.

Good luck on your project!

Moisture doesn't move laterally through concrete.
