Default Switzerland and EU free movement

Does Switzerland follow the normal EU free movement laws?

Specifically interested in an EU citizen moving there with a non-EU spouse and if the rules for residency, working, etc are the same as the rest of the EU.

Hi, I don't think there are all that many BE members living in Switzerland. You may do better asking on CH-dedicated expat forums (google), or ask at the Swiss Consulate, bearing in mind that if the EU citizen in question is from the UK, Brexit may change everything which is presently applicable....

For the most part. You will both still need to apply for a residence permit and the precise rules and procedures will depend on which canton you plan to live in.
