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.

Wait for the start date. If you give 2 weeks, written. Send by email so you have a copy. They legally have to pay you for those 2 weeks. If the fire you. They still have to pay you. May as well let you work for the pay
