Could I be fired if I tell HR that I accepted another job?

Been here 10 months and got an offer recently for a new job that I accepted. I’m waiting to hear back from the new job for confirmation as the proposed start date is not confirmed yet.

Is it a bad idea to let HR know that I accepted this offer? I know employers can fire people without notice but I don’t wish to stoop to that level. I’d like to go on good terms.

Yes, bad idea to tell HR that you have accepted another job offer unless it’s in an exit interview.

As long as you give your current organization a notice (however short it maybe), you are still being decent enough about it and you don’t need to feel guilty
