Your CV is not only an introduction to your key skills it is also a sales document. It needs to be accurate and factual while highlighting your key skills and achievements. Potential employers will check dates of employment when they take up references and it is becoming increasingly common for senior positions for employers to conduct a full 10/15 year employment screen of all new employees.
Employers also sometimes will check online source so make sure that your employment dates tally with those on LinkedIn for example.
Any gaps in employment of more than a month need to be explained and turned into an advantage if at all possible. For example; gaining more qualifications, attending courses, travelling to experience new cultures, house renovations – which could be an example of project management skills, or caring for a sick relative – demonstrating a commitment to family values.
