We're told the Westport, CT hedge fund is planning a round of job cuts. It's unclear when the layoffs might take place or how many employees might be affected. Back in July, Dealbook reported that Bridgewater had been "telling recruitment firms to cancel interviews with prospective employees" and that "dozens of interviews were canceled and advanced negotiations with prospective employees were cut short by [the hedge fund]."

Bridgewater declined to comment on the cuts.
