Or tell my employer about the loss so he does the necessary tax adjustments ?"
Unles your employer is also your tax advisor, he won't have a clue how to adjust your withholding.
But you could figure out the tax advantage of reporting a loss, for example, $3000 x 15% tax bracket is $450.00/ remaining number of paychecks for the year = the amount your withholding can be adjusted for the balance of the year.
If you'll be in the 27% bracket, $3k x 27% = $810. Continure as above.
