During free fall work done is negative of change in potential energy.Is this only valid during free fall or is applicable everytime?

Gravitational energy is the potential energy associated with gravitational force. If an object falls from one point to another point inside a gravitational field, the force of gravity will do positive work on the object, and the gravitational potential energy will decrease by the same amount.
Hope this helps.
