I just got my basement waterproofed, and in the process it was brought to my attention that the tiles in my basement floor are asbestos. Is it necessary to have the tile removed, or can I just lay new flooring over top of it?

I think if you seal it with an epoxy it's considered remediation. By being glued in place the asbestos fibres are not exposed to do harm by being breathed in. And if you lay a new floor over top of that. there is an additional barrier.
