If a customer overpays you at the register where you work and does not notice and then leaves the store, is there a legal obligation ? Would there be penalties ? Would it be a crime or a tort ?

I would say yes to all of your questions, and suggest that even more important is the moral obligation, as in common decency, trust, good business relationships, etc.
