That is how my cv looks like now:

09.2022–08.2023, Company A
01.2022–05.2022, Company B

I was fired from Company B on May 24, 2022, and they took my laptop the same day and I didn't work for them anymore. However, they paid me salary for 05.2022 and 06.2022 because of the European law and 1 month notice period. Given answer to that question, I should have written the end month of the employment period for company B in cv as 06.2022, not 05.2022, but I wasn't aware that this is the best approach. So it should look like

09.2022–08.2023, Company A
01.2022–06.2022, Company B

Today is 08.2023, over a year after the employment for company B ended. Should I amend the employment end date now in cv, LinkedIn, and various recruitment sites where I have sent that information already months ago?

If so, should I write something about this amendment, that I'm sorry for the misunderstanding and I'm amending the resume because of my previous mistake?

    These things don't matter as much as you probably think they do.

Of course, go ahead and amend the date in all your documents and sites. Now that you know it had a minor mistake it would not make sense nor be positive for you to leave it.

I don't think there is a need to "explain" or justify such amend, it's a minor fix/correction anybody should see the reason behind doing that; just do it.

Edit your CV and be sure to send that in future applications. Edit you Linkedin info accordingly. Send or update CV/dates on your other sites.
